Intriguing, recurving, bell-shaped, fragrant flowers, 7-10 cm across. Four lanceolate, slightly twisted tepals, creamy pink inside and pink-purple on the outside with a creamy edge. It blooms in late April and May, as one of the last of the group and it sometimes repeats flowering in summer. From June to autumn attractive fluffy seed heads adorn the plant. It grows 2-3 m high and clings to its support by twining leaf stalks. Very frost hardy and undemanding. It tolerates partial shade. Particularly useful for growing on fences, stones, old tree stumps and deciduous or coniferous shrubs. Makes good ground cover.
