This vigorous climbing rose is perfect for covering a sunny house or garden wall. Best on fertile, moist well-drained soil it produces old-style rosettes of fully double golden yellow flowers that are flushed with orange. Unfortunately it rarely repeats but the flower scent is heady and intoxicating. It is also reported to have a good resistance to black spot and mildew.

  • Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 20-30cm (8-12in) 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.
