This rose was so loved by its breeder Georges Delbard that after a lifetime of creating so many wonderful new varieties he wanted this one to be named after himself. It is described as one of the most beautiful and fragrant of all climbing roses. The flowers are a gorgeous blend of orange, yellow, apricot and pink with fully double petals and a generous fruity perfume. It is a vigorous but low growing climber which can also be used as a large lax shrub.

  • 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.
