A gorgeous upright compact shrub rose with intensely fragrant blooms that are produced in midsummer repeating sporadically till autumn. It looks particularly stunning near fuchsias where the intense colour is echoed in the flowers.

  • 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.
