Compact and well branched, this robust blooming power just doesn’t know when to stop. Here we are at the end of December and it is blooming its heart out. It is meant to bloom June through September, but please don’t tell that to our plant that has been going strong for months. Sturdy stems hold snow white flowers with a double row of rounded wide petals, pointing straight up to meet the sun.
