Small, self branching and naturally bushy, tested for five years in Apeldoorn and Velp (Holland), where it proved hardy to -15C. The profuse and elegant single flowers would be stunning even on a half-hardy. It prefers overhead filtered light to full sun in a cool climate. The best bloom colour is in good light, heat tolerant if shaded.
