  • Type of products available: 0/1/1P8

Main asset

A powerful perfume, on a strong hardy plant, easy to maintain even on limestone soil.


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.

This hybrid is the first selection of Victor Lemoine (Nancy) obtained in 1884, and parent of many varieties. Of medium size, its branches are arched with pointed oval deciduous leaves, medium green. At the end of spring appear single, pure white flowers ∅ 2.5-3.5 cm, very fragrant, grouped by 3-4.
