A nice semi-compact double-flowerer. Comparable to 'Expression' and 'Perfection'. A recent entry into the market yet hard to find. Foliage is darker than average.

Branches within 6" of the ground are usually fairly winter-hardy, and after a harsh winter the plant will shoot back to 3-4' and produce some blooms on old and new wood.
