Additional Information

Fluffy scented flowers smother evergreen foliage. Happy in border and container. Propagate by layering or seed in spring, or by semi-ripe cuttings in late summer. Although classed as hardy using RHS guidelines, in trials it has survived below -5oC if planted in a sheltered spot. However, in long periods of extreme cold we would suggest it is given extra protection. The frosts may take the leaves but they soon regenerate in Spring.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
