Plant Details

A very popular pink raised by Montague Allwood in 1945. Is it said that he did not originally think the plant worthwhile when he grew it from a batch of seedlings so he threw it on the compost heap. A member of his staff rescued it and propagated from it and when Mr Allwood saw it in number, he realised it's true worth and named it after his wife.

Fragrant double pale pink flowers with a darker centre. Long flowering season.

Very good in a border and can be used for cutting.

Height: 40cm

Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
