Description

Large spikes of stunning white, pink-throated flowers a loft classic pinnate, drooping large leaves.
Our specimen is branching and multi-stemmed due to being snapped in half one summer by a passing stag. This damage resulted in a fascinating growth habit with low, spreading branches at eye level.

Provenance

Purchased from a now-closed nursery near Ulverston

Cultivation

Easy, though late summer leaf disfigurement is common

Maintenance

Prune in late winter to keep to size, but doing so will lose some blooms
