An upright compact shrub which is covered in clusters of heavily fragranced, creamy-white double flowers in mid-summer. Introduced to this country from France, by Victor Lemoine in the early 20th century.
Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit, it is easy to grow and happy in most soils, in sun or light shade. Also happy in a large container.
Prune after flowering if required, as they flower on the previous season's growth.
The very fragrant flowers make it ideal for growing near a path or patio.
