A Polish variety raised by Szczepan Marczyński, introduced in the market in summer 2012. Its flowers are always full, both on last year’s wood and on new growth, relatively large for the Atragene Group (10-12 cm in diameter). Bell-shaped, nodding, set on purple pedicules and pleasantly grapefruit-scented, they have 4 elliptical, pointed sepals slightly wavy along the edges. On the outside the sepals are creamy-pink, on the underside light-pink or nearly cream coloured. The center is filled with 15-17 staminodes of similar length as the sepals or shorter, lanceolate, slightly wavy and pointy. The outer staminodes are of similar colour as sepals and they get lighter towards the middle. Stamens have yellow anthers on cream coloured filaments, and pistils are also cream coloured. Flowers are borne in May and once more - although less abundantly - in summer. It has pretty, dark green and relatively large leaves (20 cm long and 18 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 groundcover.
