Large clusters of well-spaced semi-double scented creamy-pink flowers that are produced from summer to autumn. This is a strong branching healthy shrub that flowers continually all summer. The flowers are followed by coral-coloured hips in autumn. An outstanding rose for a sunny border that associates well with bronze foliaged plants.

  • Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 20-30cm (8-12in) 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
