An outstanding variety raised by G Buchan of Aberdeen which we introduced in 2008. Formation is outstanding with flowers a lovely blend of lavender pink with a creamy white base. Flowers are held at good angles on strong stems with plants reaching 1-1.2m. We find this variety to be very weather proof . To avoid going oversize you need to grow at least 10 up as though the form is superb it is more naturally a small, small rather than a true miniature
