Plant Overview

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: 25cm

Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower

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

All our plants are supplied in 9cm 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. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
