This is the original old fashioned varities that have the best fragrance. Commonly seen in old gardens where they are naturalised across the lawn. Sometimes you will see them growing wild on the sides of the road. They are easy to grow and well suited to Australian conditions.
The blooms last a long time in a vase indoors so be sure to pick them when in flower.
