Delicately scented, fully double light pink flowers with slightly reflexed petals in June and July and glossy dark green leaves. This award-winning old-style shrub rose makes an excellent specimen plant for a mixed or shrub border. Upright and open in habit it's best grown on a support in fertile moist but well-drained soil.

  • 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.
