Large showy flowers that are crimson striped with white from July to August. This rose is a sport from 'Officinalis' and is also a good shrub that gives a wonderful effect in the garden. Great for growing as a low informal hedge or planted in a sunny well-drained border. Like 'Officinalis' it has the same delicious fragrance too.

  • 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.
