Philadelphus coronarius

Philadelphus coronarius, the Mock Orange, introduced from Asia in 1596, grows 10 or 12 feet high and the same through, and flowers freely in June. It is often spoken of as Syringa; this, however, is a bad name, as Syringa is the botanical name of the Lilac. Varieties are flore pleno, foliis argenteo-variegatis, f. aureis, and tomentosa.
