Plant quickly grows to 3-4' in height over two seasons, with stems of medium strength. It supposedly blooms pure white (not toned by pH). The foliage is light to medium green, and the leaves are somewhat long and slender, flat in gloss, with lightly serrated edges.

What I've not observed yet is if the blooms are sun-tolerant (lack of scorching), or if this can bloom on new wood (crown shoots).
