In spring this deciduous shrub erupts in brilliant yellow gold-toned leaves. The foliage turns soft chartreuse by mid-summer following an early summer display of sweetly fragrant white flowers. While the species should generally be planted in full sun to produce the most flowers, in the sunnier, hotter areas of the maritime Pacific Northwest a site with bright filtered light or shade in the afternoon might be considered to prevent leaf burn.

Plant golden mock orange in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade, depending on the intensity of the summer sun. Provide regular summer watering at least until established, then it is drought tolerant. Every year or two remove old, twiggy growth after the shrub finishes flowering. If it becomes leggy, it can be cut right back to ground level.
