A captivating woody-based perennial boasting a bushy, upright habit. Its heart-shaped leaves near the base gracefully transition into finely divided ones along the stems, weaving a tapestry of soft rose-pink, saucer-shaped blooms, enchanting the garden throughout summer and into early autumn. Nestled in cottage gardens or sunny borders, 'Rosea' stands out with its fragrant, musk-scented flowers that harmonise with other pastel plantings. A hardworking gem, this perennial attracts pollinators and, if allowed, generously seeds about, adding a touch of perennial magic to your garden display.

  • Garden care:
    To prevent the shrub from getting straggly, cut back hard to within 30cm (12in) of ground level in spring, after all risk of severe frosts has passed. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure round the base of the plant. In exposed areas shorten branches by up to one half in autumn to minimise the risk of wind damage.
