- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: May to July
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Large, cream flowers, up to 12cm across that appear from mid May to July, and again at the end of August. The cream flowers, with yellow stamens and a green bar at the centre, can fade easily in full sun so its best planted in some shade. Great against a dark background and can even be grown in a container.
- Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
