Q.Mock Orange / Beauty Bush

Zone Flushing NY 11367 | Mollyt7954 added on April 25, 2020 | Answered

I have a beauty bush my mother planted over 50 years ago. I don’t remember when but for quite awhile I also have a mock orange, which was never planted, intertwined with the beauty bush. It’s been this way for years and they both bloom. But I love the beauty bush and I want to know if one will ultimately harm the other.

I think that, ultimately, one will win out over the other. Probably, the younger specimen will out-compete the older at some point.

If you choose to keep one or the other, remove the one you intend to destroy very carefully.
