From hybridizer:
Blooms always open without crowding and are extremely fragrant blooming right under your nose where you can smell them. Exceptional plant habit carries through to seedlings...it can improve the height and branching on round forms or improve the strength of scapes on more spidery forms equally well. The color is a clarifier.

This is a great landscape plant. Vigorous and tough. Blooms are consistently perfect. Surprisingly large number of blooms for being so large. Puts on a great show for a long bloom period.
