Masses of large semi-double fragrant white flowers from July to September occasionally followed by spherical red rose-hips. This popular and reliable shrub rose is perfect for a mixed or shrub border in sun or partial shade. Best on fertile, moist, well-drained soil the delicate paper-like blooms make elegant cut-flowers.

  • 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.
