5" highly fragrant near white bloom with gently ruffled petals, a pale yellow eye, and tiny celery green throat is one of the best. Vigorous plants. Fragrant. Extended bloom. Early-Mid. Rebloomer.
Plants prefer full sun to light shade and fertile, moist, well-drained soils, but they will tolerate both drier and wetter soils. Tolerant of coastal conditions and clay soil.
Individual blooms last for a single day, but lots of buds keep them blooming for an extended period.
Attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Cut back after blooming to within 3"-6" of the ground for better foliage and to encourage reblooming. Divide every three to four years to maintain vigor.
