Plant Details

An early Victorian plant with double flowers of fringed white petals and crimson lacing. Heavily scented.

Introduced around 1840.

Long stems make this an excellent choice for cutting.

The Lady Granville this flower was named after is thought to be either the first wife of the first Earl of Granville, or the wife of the second Earl whose marriage took place in 1840.

Height: 25cm

Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots 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.
