William Baffin

Hardy as nails yet pretty as a picture. Bill's super vigor, disease resistance and ability to survive 'Father Winter' is only surpassed by his wonderful display of bawdy pink blossoms. Blooms on new and old wood. Wonderfully hardy. Proven performer for the North. Only available own-root.
