A compact version of ‘Grandiflora’, obviously! The brown stems are too thin to support the flowers upright but they are dense and therefore do not bend over completely so giving a nice arching effect. The panicles (flower heads) are medium sized and short with a rounded end. The individual sterile flowers are small but densely packed on the panicles so their small size does not matter. They start of white and mature to a delicate pink
