Plant in part shade to full shade. Ht. 6. Space 6 or less. Hardy Perennial from Zone 2 to 9. - This is considered a vast improved over the regular species with 15% larger, pure white, bell-shaped, extremely perfumed flowers that start blooming above the foliage instead of between the leaves. This variety also blooms more prolifically than the species in the spring so you will have lots of flowers for several weeks. The foliage is also darker green and larger than the species.
