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

Main asset

A powerful perfume, on a small development plant, strong, hardy, 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 one of the many varieties obtained by Victor Lemoine (Nancy) at the beginning of the XXth century. Compact, its deciduous leaves are oval pointed, light green. In late spring, half-double to single pure white ∅ 2.5-3.5 cm flowers are very fragrant, grouped by 3-4.
