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.
