Physical Characteristics. Perennial growing to 0.6m by 0.6m . It is hardy to zone 5 and is not frost tender. It is in flower from June to October. The scented flowers are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs) and are pollinated by Bees and flies. The plant is self-fertile. We rate it 3 out of 5 for usefulness. The plant prefers light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils, requires well-drained soil and can grow in nutritionally poor soil. The plant prefers acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils. It cannot grow in the shade. It requires moist soil. The plant can tolerate maritime exposure.

They live longer when growing in a poor soil. The plant has a spreading root system and can be very invasive. Hardy to at least -25°C. There are some named varieties, selected for their ornamental value. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus.
