Masses of cupped fully double sweetly scented white flowers from July to September on an upright bushy shrub. This lovely white version of the gorgeous 'Mary Rose' has all the attributes of its parent except the flowers are white sometimes with a slight touch of buff pink in the centre. The blooms are produced on regular intervals throughout the season and look superb with purple and blue flowered plants.

  • Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.
