Masses of loosely cup-shaped fragrant double deep pink flowers from June to September and mid-green leaves on thornless stems. This beautiful repeat-flowering Bourbon rose is one of the best and most reliable climbing varieties. Excellent for covering a north-facing wall it may also be pruned to form a tall informal flowering hedge.

  • 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.
