Small elegant sprays of fully double slightly scented creamy-white flowers in June and July and glossy dark-green leaves. The foliage of this vigorous rambling rose is virtually evergreen making it ideal for covering unsightly buildings or walls. It will happily grow in sun or partial shade often producing a second flush of fragrant blooms.

  • Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.
