In summer this rose produces extra large heavy clusters of small semi-double flowers that have a heady scent. These are followed in autumn by small orange-red hips that look really pretty especially in frosty weather. Because of its size it is suitable for training through a tree and as it is so tough and reliable it will happily compete with the trees root system once it has had a chance to become established. Alternatively just plant it where you want to cover any large or unsightly area.

  • 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.
