A Polish variety raised by Szczepan Marczyński, introduced in the market in summer 2012.

Flowers are full and exceptionally large for the Atragene Group, reaching 10-12 cm in diameter, light lemon-yellow and during budding – lime coloured. In full bloom the colour whitens. Bell-shaped, nodding, set on purple pedicles, the flowers smell pleasantly of a grapefruit. They have 4 lanceolate, slightly wavy and pointy sepals and 12-15 staminodes. Stamens are composed of yellow anthers set on lime-coloured filaments and pistils are light-yellow. Flowers borne in May and once more - although less abundantly - in summer. It has pretty, dark green and relatively large leaves (21 cm long and 14 cm wide) which are compound – trifoliate, with leaflets of attractive texture and serrated edges. It reaches 2-3 m height. Attaches itself to the support by means of twining leaf petioles. Frost hardy and undemanding.

Prefers sunny but not hot sites and tolerates semi-shade. Particularly suitable for training along fences, garden supports, rocks, old tree stumps or over deciduous or coniferous shrubs. Useful as a ground cover.
