Clusters of huge, fully double, very fragrant deep to light pink blooms in midsummer which stand out against the grey-green foliage. Perhaps one of the finest old-fashioned roses, this shrub rose is ideal for an open sunny site. Though a vigorous grower it is also disease resistant.

  • 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.
