United Kingdom (Zone 8a) wrote:

Most years it blooms reliably and has a large number of white flowers (mostly 4 - 5 cm across, a few a bit larger). The flowers are greenish-white when they first appear but become pure white when they have been out for a day or so. I grow it in a pot, and prune after flowering to control its size. In this location it sometimes shows some signs of frost damage so if you are in zone 7 you might need to protect it a bit during the winter.
