This shrub matures at
about ten feet tall and ten feet in diameter. Its size will be determined
by the particular plant and its environment. It does well in full sun and
most soils with good drainage.
The blooms are white with a hint
of pink, especially in the buds. Its sweet fragrance is attractive to many
insects, bees, and butterflies. Humming Birds also visit it. The bloom
is on growth of the previous year.
It is good to remove about 1/3
of the old growth every summer just after it blooms. This will encourage
new growth which will produce next year's bloom. Remove all dead canes,
then remove the oldest canes first.
