The flowers are lovely, beautifully scented, and the moss on the buds fascinating. Very hardy, it survives my zone 4 winters with very little die-back. However, I've had this plant for 4-5 years, and it's still very small. Not more than 2' high, only two main stems in spite of my pruning and trying to coax it to grow fuller. Therefore not a big impact in the garden. Lovely to stop and admire, if you don't miss it on your way through.
