Description

Lovely sugar pink flowers with good form for exhibition good garden performance. When young plants are growing strongly the growing tip should be removed to encourage the development of flowering stems. If you are growing for showing then to achieve the best size for this section we would suggest restricting the flowering stems to 4 or 5 and, once the flowering bud is visible, removing the first 4-5 pairs of buds below this. If you are just looking for garden display then more blooms can be allowed to develop and less side buds. Ensure the plants are kept well supported. Regular removal of dead flowers will help provide a longer display.1.2 m. Suitable for Garden and exhibition.
