  • Flower Colour: apricot fading to cream

Unlike most of the other rambling roses this one will often produce a second flush of flowers towards the end of summer. These have a sweet musky scent and appear in clusters on almost thornless stems. They open from bud to reveal apricot coloured petals which gradually fade to creamy-white so you often get different coloured roses on the plant at the same time. It is not too robust so is a good choice for covering an archway or smaller space and it is said to have excellent resistance to disease.

  • 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.
