Deep pink buds open to very attractive light pink flowers fading to blush pink or white with age. The freely produced double or semi-double flowers can have 20 to 30 narrow petals. Slow growing, making a rounded shrub or small tree.

Moist, reasonably fertile, humus-rich soil, preferably acid to neutral. Will thrive in heavy clay and tolerant of atmospheric pollution. Best in a sheltered position in sun or part shade.
If required, prune unwanted or crossing branches when dormant in autumn or late winter to very early spring.

From cuttings. Can be grafted but better grown on its own roots.
