Plant details

A superb Hybrid Musk, it has a huge supply of light pink flowers with prominent yellow stamens. Individually you couldn't call the flowers great beauties, but whn massed together they make a terrific sight against their thick mound of rich green leafy growth. Keep deadheading to promote more buds, with the final batch being followed by pink hips. A lovely scent. Worth growing one extra plant for taking cuttings - it's that good.
