A small growing cultivar bred in GB 1966.

It flowers profusely over the summer with very little attention. Bears semi-double flowers with light rose/red sepals and white corollas with faint reddish veins.

It's almost frost hardy but will need shelter from cold drying winds and taken indoors in winter cold regions.

Makes an excellent bonsai subject but it's small enough as it is!
