SKU
31689
A profusion of formal, double white and pink candy-striped petals in varied shades, over a long season. More cold tolerant than most varieties; typically blooms later in spring in colder regions. The upright, vigorous form grows quickly when young, filling in nicely as a hedge, screen or foundation shrub with handsome, dark, evergreen foliage.
