Very pretty it is too, Balc. Lovely how it softens the railings, and wraps round them.

Thanks a lot, Kate! 👍 I believe you identified it for me a couple of years ago but as I didn't write it down I forgot it's name! If I remember rightly you pointed me to an article in GW at the time.

Lots of lovely flowers for a small rose, Balcony.

Thank you, Lindak! It's just a shame I can't enjoy them for several more weeks!The strong winds of late have spoilt the display rather this year. Lots of petals have been burnt from the strength of the wind. I really love the colour of this beautiful rose!

Yes, it is a shame that the weather has damaged so many plants and fences Balcony. Do you cut the old flowers off so that hopefully you will get some more roses.

Yes, I do deadhead them once all the flowers are finished but not to encourage new flowers as this one only flowers once a year, it's not repeat flowering, so as to direct its energy into new growth for next year's flowers.

I have checked my flowers on my Canary Bird Balcony and they don't have the white round the edges like yours do.
Also, thanks for the Geum details. I have sent for Totally Tangerine. I may just have room to squeeze it into my border!
I have just been online and found your Canary Bird. There must be different kinds.
Yours is Xanthina var. Spontanea
