Albertine

Popular for 75 years, Albertine is a very vigorous plant that requires continuous securing as the plant grows. It does well on a pergola or on against a wall where the purple stems and striking deep green foliage stand out magnificently. The heavily scented flowers are deep pink to salmon with hints of copper. The cupped blooms appear in clusters for only about 3 weeks in mid-summer. Still it gives a great show and is still considered well worth growing.
