Comments Katharina Zeimet is a compact polyantha with neat, round, white flowers. These are borne in great profusion, nearly obscuring the leaves and stems. The show repeats two or three times per season in zone 7. It is a vigorous plant, and not prone to disease. Under good conditions, parent Marie Pavie is superior- making a larger plant with bigger flowers, but in poor, dry soil Katherina Zeimet is far superior.
