Plant Details

Single white fringed flowers with a faint green eye. Very fragrant. Plants make nice compact clumps.

Awarded the RHS 'Award of Merit Garden' in 1946.

Some confusion exists as to whether this pink was Raised by C. T. Musgrave in 1936 or whether it has in fact been around since 1730 as a similar plant appears in a painting of that date. Either way, it is a super single pink. 

Height: 15cm

Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower

Synonyms: 'Avalon'; 'Charles Musgrave'; 'Green Eye'; 'Tiverton'; 'Washfield'

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.
