Subtly scented double ruby-red flowers from July to September and masses of glossy dark green leaves.

An excellent gift for a 40th wedding anniversary, the beautifully shaped blooms on stiff stems make excellent cut-flowers.

  • 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.
