Polish cultivar of charming white flowers with wavy sepals. Particularly useful in small gardens and in containers, in balconies and terraces. Looks pretty against dark background.  


WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: Flowers 10-12 cm across, pure white, single; sometimes semi-double on previous year shoots. Purple stamens contrast beautifully with white sepals.  Free flowering in V-VI, from top to bottom. Leaves compound, consist in three leaflets – dark green and slightly wavy. New leaves adorned with red margin. Robust shoots with short internodes, light green when new and brown when mature.  

HOW IT GROWS: A climber; uses leaf tendrils; Reaches 1.4-1.7 m height.

WHERE TO PLANT: Prefers well-lit but not overheated sites. Blooms most abundantly in fertile, humous, moist but well-drained soil (not waterlogged). Tolerates average soil if fertilized. The preferred soil pH is from alkaline neutral to slightly acidic. Frost hardy (zone 4-9).

HOW TO PLANT AND MAINTAIN: Plant in a hole (60 x 60 x 60 cm) dug in fertile soil with a 10-cm drainage layer at the bottom, 5-10 cm deeper than it was in the container. In spring the plant needs hard pruning at ca. 50 cm to remove damaged and dead shoots. Fertilize with slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote 5-6M) in mid-April. Water throughout the season.

HOW TO APPLY: Perfectly suited for growing along lower garden supports, also by rose bushes and other shrubs and conifers. It will grow well in containers in balconies and terraces. Looks particularly attractive against dark background.
