Comments Nymphenburg was bred by Wilhelm Kordes to be a "Parkland Shrub" and for this purpose it is well suited. It makes a large plant that is well branched and foliated. The plant bears pink flowers that may be kissed with enough yellow to turn pale apricot. And there is some fragrance. At least in cool summer climates it is vigorous and resistant to disease.
