Large fully double, fragrant bright crimson flowers from July to September and greyish-green leaves. This repeat-flowering shrub rose is the brightest crimson English rose currently available. To fully appreciate the charming old-fashioned rose fragrance which develops as the flowers age, plant in a sunny border close to an entrance or path.

  • 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.
