Opulent fully double, fragrant, magenta-pink flowers with closely packed petals in July and mid-green leaves. This gorgeous old Gallica rose is ideal for a mixed or shrub border or grown as an informal flowering hedge. Upright and arching in habit, it performs best in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun.

  • 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.
