A beautiful Polish cultivar bearing always semi-double and double, lime-yellow and bell-shaped flowers, smelling of grapefruit. It blooms most abundantly in May and then continues less profusely until August. In the garden, it can grow by different types of supports or can be intertwined with other deciduous and coniferous shrubs.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: Medium-sized flowers (large for the Atragene group), 7˗9 cm in diameter, semi-double and double, overhanging, set on purple pedicels, lime-yellow; during fading they turn stronger yellow, and at the base of the flowers a burgundy coloring appears along the innervation. Pleasantly grapefruit-scented. Flowers consist of 4 lanceolate, slightly wavy, pointed sepals and of 10-25 staminodia. The staminodia are pointed and elongated, they may be longer than the outer sepals, all their tips are raised. Stamens have yellow anthers on lime-yellow filaments and a yellow pistil. The cultivar blooms most abundantly in May but continues to bloom (less profusely) until August. Dark green, matt, smooth, compound trifoliate leaves.
HOW IT GROWS: A climber; climbs by means of petioles. It grows moderately strongly up to 2-3 m high.
WHERE TO PLANT: It likes well-lit, but not heated locations. Tolerates partial shade. Grows best on moderately fertile, moderately moist, well-drained soils. Soil pH should be neutral to slightly acidic. Hardy (zone 4˗9).
HOW TO PLANT AND GROW: The plant should be placed in a hole (60 x 60 x 60 cm) in fertile soil and a 10 cm layer of drainage at the bottom, 0.5-1 cm deeper than it was planted before (planting tutorial). It is easy to grow. No pruning is required. Only when it spreads excessively, it could be pruned shortly after flowering in May (pruning tutorial). Watering required during the vegetation period.
HOW TO APPLY: Particularly useful for growing over fences, garden supports, stones, old trunks, deciduous or coniferous shrubs. May be used as a ground cover.
