Green Alder
Mock Orange

Green Alder is a cold hardy, native shrub. It is often planted on infertile sites so it can fix nitrogen from the air and improve the soil quality.

Green Alder is known for its smooth grey bark and attractive shiny green leaves; it is commonly used in reclamation.

Mock Orange's white flowers look and smell like those of the orange, with a hint of jasmine in the scent. It is an excellent ornamental shrub. People love the contrast between its flowers and dark green leaves.

Mock Orange is suitable for planting alone or in groups as a hedge or privacy screen.
