A fantastic plant for the patio or where you sit in the evening. During a sunny day the flowers close to a lovely red hue and then as evening draws in the bright white flowers open to display their full glory and release a beautiful scent.
Aromatic, evergreen foliage that forms a dense, neat dome. The pink, match-head like buds remain closed during the heat of the day and then open wide to reveal the white upper parts of the flower and release the heady scent.
Usually flowers from June to September but may also flower outside of this period. Cut back after flowering and you should be rewarded with a second flush of flowers.
A valuable food source for moths, which have seen their numbers decimated in recent years.
Works very well at the edge of a raised bed, front of border or in a container on the patio. Happy in reasonable shade but will flower better with more sun. Can be planted in a container and moved to a sunny spot during the flowering months.
Hardy down to at least -5c. Our plants came through the 'Beast from East' which was colder.
Height and spread: 25cm x 30cm
