    Fabulously fragrant, large, tubular, white flowers, ageing to yellow, from July to September and oval, mid-green leaves.

“Nothing beats the sweet honeyed fragrance perfuming the warm, soft mellow air of a summer’s evening. Remember to take hardwood cuttings in Autumn of this indispensable plant –they are easy to do and almost foolproof”
