This compact selection has both attractive foliage and flowers. It forms a bushy mound of attractive green leaves that often take on a rosy tint in cooler weather. Wands of small silky blooms appear for months on end. They’re a colour breakthrough with white flowers featuring a pretty, cherry-pink picotee edge. Introduced by award-winning Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants, UK. Note that botanists have recently reclassified and named this species Oenothera lindheimeri.
