Beautiful large mauve flowers that are grouped in threes and fives on the stem. Named after a perfume by Christian Dior this rose has a rich perfume that has hints of bergamot and geranium. A lovely rose for a sunny spot where it looks fabulous planted en masse.

  • 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.
