Description

An unusual raspberry red free flowering collerette raised by Ivor Kitchener. This variety has been about for a few years being introduced in 2003 but it adds a new colour to our range of this increasingly popular classification. Like all open centered varieties it is attracts all manner of pollinators to the garden and being very free flowering adds a new dimension to the cottage garden border with its long flowering season. Plants can be stopped at 5-6 pairs of leaves and all subsequent side shoots allowed to develop. For garden use there is no need to thin down or even disbud though deadheading will help prolong the flowering display. Grows to approx 1.2m.
