  • Rate of growth: Average to fast
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: Fully hardy

'Rustica Rubra' produces big, goblet-shaped flowers in spring, but retains a compact, bushy habit, which makes it ideal for creating a big splash in a little space. The flowers have a light fragrance and the creamy-white petals are washed with raspberry-pink on their outer edges, creating a lush two-tone effect, which fades over time. The intensity increases with the age of the plant. A magnificent addition to the shrub border, it will also make a beautiful specimen in the spring garden.

  • Garden care:
    Plant in a sheltered spot, away from strong winds. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in spring. Mulch in spring with manure or leafmould, especially on dry soils.
