Large clusters of small orange-scented semi-double white-streaked dark magenta flowers in June and July and light green leaves. This vigorous thornless rambling rose looks gorgeous trained against an old brick wall. Best protected from strong midday sun, the diminutive blooms mature to bluish-lilac before fading to lilac-grey.

  • 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.
