I have this one - it's a cracker, flowering for months on end.

That's handy to know. Many thanks.

Because it is rather an airy plant, I grow it under and through a (Philadelphus) shrub, and that gives it good support and gives the bush what looks like an extra flush of flowers.

Yes it looked like a bit of an untidy grower and what you suggest as a plant to grow up and through the base of a shrub sounds just right.

Inverglen, it's not an untidy grower at all and must be the best of its type I've ever had. You can see it on my recent blog if you like...I think it's amazing:-)

Looked at your blog Bornagain and yes you are right. At Chelsea it looked like it needed to be supported by something else and Odjibway's message seemed to confirm that but your plant looks strong and just fine on its own. Thank you.
