The Petals Change Colors as they Mature!

Fragrant, cold-hardy, and beautiful!

Sweet-scented and easy to grow, 'Raspberry Swirl' is a pleasing sight with its double blooms in bright colors and its clove-like aroma. Find a special place in the perennial border, annual bed, foundation, or container for this one!

One of an English series developed for longer bloom and bigger, fully double flowers, 'Raspberry Swirl' regales you with flowers that begin pink with burgundy edges and mature to pure white with dark pink edges! Very free-flowering, it sets its blooms on tall, sturdy stems among needle-thin blue-green leaves.

Enjoy the flowers from early spring to early summer, helped by the butterflies that visit frequently. If you shear the plant back, the blooms may encore in fall! And when it's out of bloom, 'Raspberry Swirl' is still attractive with mounded, neat, brightly colored foliage.

'Raspberry Swirl' thrives in full to part sun. Give it good soil drainage and neutral to alkaline pH. Zones 5-9.

This plant is pretty, and it does bloom right into the Fall season. However, the plant does not have hardy stems so it does not stand upright, it rather flops over, which is unattractive. I planted this plant in my front walkway so I will try placing a stone edging next to the plant to help hold it up.
