Large and fast growing shrub, but usually short lived. Profuse large shell pink flowers produced over a long period from midsummer.
Very fast growing but branches have a tendency to split and break and may require support. Requires good drainage and full sun. May be damaged or killed by winter frosts.
Best to cut all growth hard back in spring.
From cuttings in early summer.
