The pipe tree, also known as false jasmine or farmer's jasmine, is a native shrub that requires almost no care. Only in the first few years should you take care of the ornamental shrub, which is not always non-toxic, so that it grows well at its location.

The mock orange tree is a very easy-care ornamental tree

How must the chanterelle tree be watered?

In the first few years, the chanterelle should be watered more frequently so that the soil never dries out completely. However, waterlogging must be avoided.

Over the years, occasional watering will suffice.

If the shrub has been in the same place for many years, it takes care of itself.

Do chanterelles need fertilizer regularly?

Mock orange prefers a slightly loamy, nutritious soil. However, they thrive on almost any soil that is not too sandy or too firm.

Before planting, you should mix some mature compost or horn shavings (32.93€) into the potting soil.

In the early years, you can fertilize the shrub in spring. Use fertilizer that is low in nitrogen. If there is too much nitrogen, the shrub will develop a large number of leaves but no flowers.

When do ornamental shrubs need to be cut?

In principle, it is not necessary to prune chanterelles. If pruned, then immediately after flowering. The shrub can

  • brought into shape
  • cut back
  • tapered or
  • thinned out

will. For propagation, shoot tips can be cut as cuttings after flowering.

Which pests can occur?

Black aphids, primarily the black bean aphid, occasionally attack the chanterelle tree vigorously.

Therefore, if possible, never plant euonymus and viburnum near a mock orange tree.

The larvae of the black bean aphid overwinter on these shrubs. In the summer they spread to the chanterelle tree and sometimes form a dense infestation there.

What diseases does mock orange suffer from?

Diseases hardly ever occur in the chanterelle tree.

Is the mock orange tree hardy?

In contrast to the real jasmine, the mock orange is completely hardy. It does not require any winter protection at all, even when temperatures drop to -30 degrees.


Mock orange thrives in sun and partial shade. The ornamental shrub is so robust that it occasionally even grows under walnut trees, under which hardly any other plant has a chance.
