    Fabulously fragrant, cup-shaped, pure white, anemone-like flowers in June and July and lustrous, dark green leaves. This summer-flowering, evergreen shrub looks marvellous grown against a sheltered, south or west-facing wall, protected from cold, drying winds. It's upright then slightly spreading form is perfect for training into a fan-shape.

  • Garden care: After pruning lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant.
