Golden Mock Orange

The leaves literally just POPPED out in two days on my Golden Mock Orange aka "Philadelphus Coronarius Aureus" I have to keep an eye out for those NASTY aphids that love snacking on this little guy .. I really do like this little shrub .. but .. i have yet to have those tantalizing fragrant flowers on it yet .. isn't 4 years enough with the waiting ???

I have a Golden Mock Orange in a pot on my balcony. How do I know if it is dead?

Hello there mixednuts .. don't let it completely dry out especial with Spring coming .. the only way to know it it is still alive is waiting to see if it will form leaf buds and leaf out for you .
What garden zone are you in ? .. that can make an impact too !
Hope it is still alive because they really are nice shrubs : )
