'Nelly Moser' is covered with showy large pale pink flowers with carmine midstripes in summer. Blooms come primarily from the previous year's stems in late spring, but also occurs in a second flush later in the summer on the new growth. Flowers are open-faced and large at 6-8". Flowers give way to attractive seed heads. Resistant to both deer and black walnut, Nelly Moser is strong and adaptable, and very easy to grow. Pruning Group: 2.
Group 1 – Flowers only on old wood (previous year). Prune after spring flowering.
Group 2 – Flowers on both old and new wood. Little pruning should be done for woody-stemmed members of this Group. If cut to the ground or pruned in fall or spring, flowering will be reduced or delayed, but not prevented.
Group 3 – Flowers only on new wood. Can be cut to the ground in fall or spring.
