Like the species, our selection attracts a variety of pollinators. Both the stout stems and the bold foliage are a handsome green. It has also exhibited excellent resistance to powdery mildew. It’s known provenance is valuable for matching it with appropriate environments. The white flowers are an excellent contrast to the species typical mauve-pink 
    flowers.
