Main asset

One of the most powerful scents of garden shrubs, on a solid, hardy plant, easy to maintain even on limestone soil.


Every 2-3 years, just after flowering (July), prune the shrub below the floriferous parts to cause vigorous growth of new branches, which will give the flowers the following year.

Sterile triploid hybrid obtained by Lemoine (Nancy) in 1925, of medium size, with arched branches furnished with oval deciduous leaves, and bearing at the end of spring simple white flowers with small crimson base, very fragrant.
