‘Magical Pearl’ is a stunning clear white flower held on strong stems over deep green foliage. After a few weeks from the peak of flowering, the white ages to a chartreuse green that looks great in bouquets or as dried flowers. Flowers are formed on both old and new wood, so pruning shouldn’t be done unless necessary. With that said, the white flowers can be pruned at any time to make way for fresh new flower stems.
