Plant details

Bees' Jubilee' was raised in 1958 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the nursery Bees of Chester. Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigous Award of Garden Merit (AGM), it still holds its own among modern varieties. It produces mauve-pink flowers with a deeper central bar from spring to late summer and make unusual cut blooms. The plant's compact habit makes it ideal for growing in a conatiner. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps.
