Spotlight on Philadelphus ‘Petite Perfume Pink’

Spotlight on Philadelphus ‘Petite Perfume Pink’

The third of our seven entries for the New Plant Awards at the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) National Plant Show on June 19 and 20 (2024) is Philadelphus ‘Petite Perfume Pink’.

Bred by the legendary Alan Postil at Hillier, this is the world’s most pink flowered Philadelphus!

This collection of Philadelphus is proudly grown in partnership with Newey, a collaboration between young and final plant producer that strengthens relationships and opens up new opportunities for the horticulture industry.

Bees and butterflies

Grown for fragrant flowers, this shrub has a lengthy six-week flowering window and produces masses of flowers throughout summer, attracting bees and butterflies.

Being hardy down to -25°c and almost indestructible, makes this an extremely robust variety to have in the garden.

Very versatile

A compact, mound forming shrub, the Philadelphus Petite Perfume Pink is very versatile. It is perfect for a smaller garden and can also be used in woodland borders or as a screen. It prefers a sunny to partial shade spot and can grow up to 1.5m tall in time, with a spread of 50cm.

When planted in pots or in borders, this variety can create an incredibly scented garden.

Minimal Attention

Its dwarf size means Petite Perfume Pink is easy to look after and responds well to pruning due to its naturally mound forming habit and it is incredibly drought tolerant, so regular watering is not required.

It is an incredibly manageable shrub, requiring very minimal attention and is the ideal plant for urban or coastal areas due to its high tolerance to air pollution.

Perfect pairing

When paired with the Philadelphus ‘Petite Perfume White’, consumers can have scented white and pink flowers all summer long.
