Deliciously double fragrant deep crimson-maroon flowers with closely packed petals in summer and dark green leaves. This gorgeous Gallica rose is probably a sport of 'Tuscany' which it is very similar too but less bushy and a little taller. A superb rose for a shrub border where it will look lovely planted alongside deep purple flowering plants and foliage.

  • 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.
