GLEBE TREES AND SHRUBS
Queen Elizabeth Drive and Fifth Ave.
Mock-orange is described by Durr as a "large rounded shrub
with stiff, straight, ascending branches that arch with age;
often leggy, straggly."
This is very much what that one looks like. The one at Queen
Elizabeth Drive and Broadway is small and pruned.
Photo taken June 14, 2008. Corner Broadway and Queen Elizabeth Drive.
Leaves are opposite with only a few teeth.
June 14 and 21, 2008. Showy flowers, lots of them on each shrub.
July 7, 2008. Only sepals left.
These are last year's husks, globular and 4-parted. Some stay on the tree all year.
