Main asset

Single pure white flowers, contrast with the purple petioles and young shoots, powerful fragrance and good vigor : all to adopt it !


Every 2-3 years, just after flowering (July), prune the shrub below the floriferous parts to cause vigorous growth of new branches, which will give the flowers the following year.

Plants for Europe
