Large sprays of single scented creamy-white flowers from July to August followed by bright red hips and glossy light green leaves. This extremely vigorous climbing rose is perfect for covering an unsightly building or growing through a strong tree. Tall and spreading it requires fertile, moist well-drained soil and adequate space to grow.

  • 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.
