    It's got nice flowers but it is NOT a dwarf. Currently about 1.5m x1.5m and thats following two lots of hard pruning as well. Massive!

  2. Dwarf - joke!!

    By Nicola Hart 18-09-2015

    I ordered two of these this year for my small garden as recommended. They have both taken over the garden. I have had to hard prune them twice so far and they are still bolting away. 30" high - taller that me already, 24" spread - 10 foot at least...I will have to pull them up in the autumn and throw them away as I do not have the space for them.
