Description

Height x Spread: 30cm x 30cm

'Doris' produces lots of fragrant clove-scented double flowers with pale pink petals tinted red at their base above mounds of finely cut grey-green foliage.

This modern pink is a very useful front of border cottage garden plant, as its delightful evergreen foliage provides a complimentary background to its neighbours, even when not in flower.  It is equally happy in a rock garden, trough or container.  Its flowers also cut well for a scented posy. Regular deadheading will promote further flowering. It grows best in a neutral to alkaline well-drained soil in full sun.
