The latest cultivar from Szczepan Marczyński's collection with light violet-pink, nearly circular flowers that get lighter towards the centre and are ornamented with pinkish veins.
Flowers 8-10 cm in diameter, consist of 4-6 rhomboid, pointy sepals, which underneath are light violet with white-pink bar along the middle. Stamens beautifully contrast with the perianth they are short, circularly arranged, with dark purple-violet, almost black anthers on yellow filaments. Flowers are borne abundantly from the end of June till mid-August and then, more sparsely, till the end of September. Leaves, up to 20 cm long and 15 cm wide, consist of 3-5 lackluster green leaflets, each about 10 cm long and 6 cm wide, sometimes dented. New shoots are green-purple and the old ones – brown. The plant reaches 3 m height. Climbs by leaf petioles.
Relatively undemanding, robust cultivar. Useful as a cover when cultivated over fences, arbours, trellises and other tall garden supports. It can also climb over natural supports, such as large shrubs or trees. Looks particularly attractive against light background.
