This is one of the new hybrids from Germany by Helmut Petzold. It is a very free-flowering plant and is highly scented. It is one of the early-flowering types and starts to flower in March going through to May, depending on the temperature. The lower the temperature, the longer the flowers stay open and on the plant.
The colour can vary according to the temperature, varying from pink to fawn. The cooler the conditions, the darker the colour.
The buds are formed in the winter, so if you take cuttings in very early spring (Jan.-Feb.) it is possible to have them in flower the same year (May-June), but if you take cuttings too early or too late, you won’t get any flowers that season.
