Positive Alaria On Oct 23, 2009, Alaria from Rockport, MA wrote:

Incredibly hardy. One survived three hard winters outdoors in a pot. Lovely small blossoms, delicate, the pale pink and white of seashells, predominantly white. Nice trailing or loosely climbing habit; was attractive climbing up a lattice mixed with honeysuckle. Subtle fragrance. Pretty and very healthy bright green, shiney leaves.
