Repeat Flowering
Highly Fragrant
Highly Recommended by David Austin Roses
RHS Award of Garden Merit

The flowers are beautiful at all stages. They are cupped at first, opening to form large rosettes, filled with many perfectly arranged petals. Their colour is a soft peachy pink. As the blooms open, the outer petals turn back and become a paler shade. There is a delicious fruity fragrance in the tea rose tradition. This versatile rose is closely related to Leander, from which it inherits its vigorous, almost thornless growth. An extremely tough, reliable and healthy rose with plentiful, large, dark green leaves.

It is an excellent all round climber, excelling both in beauty and performance. It is particularly suitable for an arch or pillar.

Planted on the arch fence side
