Just walked past this one - awesome wonderful sweet smelling flowers. What is this and can I find some to grow in the garden?

Philadelphus coronaria "Aureus", they have a lovely scent and are known as "mock orange". I have a variegated one with white splashed foliage.

Ah yes mock orange; I was thinking about trying to grow a cutting from the neighbour's garden (derelict and empty property). Any idea if it's possible?

Oooooh! I love this, we used to have it in our garden when I was a kid and it smells all nostalgic! Going to buy myself a Philadelphus.
