  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    First previewed at Chelsea in 2010, this rare and delightful shrub will often produce its lightly scented flowers from late spring to early autumn. The flowers themselves are a delight and form along the branches. They are a rich shade of burgundy red, with just a hint of cream towards their centre - very attractive against the backdrop of the lustrous green foliage, which usually turns buttery shades in autumn.

  • Garden care: Shelter from cold drying winds. Remove dead or damages stems in late winter or early spring.
