This remarkable selection has deliciously fragrant flowers, the double white petals splashed brightly with red and also fringed along their edges, a style known as picotee. It forms a midsized mound of grassy blue-green leaves. Excellent for cutting. Good drainage is essential for winter hardiness. Evergreen. Remove faded blooms to encourage more buds.
