This hybrid form is a cross between E. racemosa and E × macrantha 'The Bride' and the resulting plant shows the best characteristics of both its parents. It is shrubbier than 'The Bride', with less splayed branches, but best of all, it produces masses of flowers. It is a deciduous shrub, and as it is relatively compact, it can be grown in the border or in a big pot on the patio.
- Garden care: Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
