A fully double-flowered form of 'Besse Howells'!
If you're looking for something new and distinctive to bring to your garden, look no further than this gorgeous raspberry-red, hose-in-hose (one blossom inside another), fully double-flowered form of 'Besse Howells'! These blooms are so packed with petals and beautifully formed, they hardly look real.

It offers a compact, mounding habit of exceptionally bright green foliage, making it a wonderful specimen, border accent, or low-growing shrub for planting near entrances.

'Double Besse' reaches a very manageable size of about 4 feet high and wide. Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil in full sun to partial shade. Zones 5-8.
