In 1995 I crossed Philadelphus microphyllus with P. delavayi calvescens. The best seedling I named ‘Dainty Lady’. It is an idea shrub for small gardens as the intense fragrant flowers are borne on slender branches in early June.
Immediately after flowering cut the flower stems down to the ground.
Can be seen on the front drive of the Hiller Gardens, Romsey, Hampshire and is planted in a east facing border at Longstock Park Nursery.
