An absolute stunner. Love how the petals have changed to this beautiful, warm colour. Just wish I had more space in my garden! May have to have another look!

That is interesting. I thought last time you mentioned it that it isn't the same as ours in the UK. Here it has a shrub like growth and reaches 12 feet. The flowers are white and not fertile - also smaller than your pink ones.
I looked it up on Google and noticed that because of the close up photos all the flowers look bigger than they really are!
Yours is very attractive. Does is want to send out many stems you have to keep removing and do you have a struggle to keep it small? I don't think ours would respond well to that treatment - have never seen it done.

The flowers here are the actual size. I have to trim it so it doesn't block the windows. It seems to respond well to pruning. It's been here for over 20 years. Thanks
