A very old, popular variety, first introduced in the late 1860s, its large (5cm diam) round soft silvery mauve flowers with pale creamy centres have a delicious, particularly pronounced fragrance. Named after the daughter of Mr Albert Mott of Sunningdale, Berkshire, in whose garden it was raised. Much requested by our customers who have fond memories of it from their childhoods. Can make a tall specimen but a bit of a wimp in the north!
RHS Award of Merit 1922.
