Fragrant spikes of small rich rose-pink flowers stand above glossy green foliage in the summer. Compact habit makes this a good choice for small gardens in shrub borders and mixed into perennial borders. Deciduous.
Provide moist, humus-rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil; avoid hot, dry sites. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in early spring. Blooms on current season's growth; prune annually in late winter to promote vigorous new growth.
