Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: July to September
Flower colour: orange-yellow fading to copper-pink

Hardiness: fully hardy
Large, cupped, single flowers, over 6cm across, change from warm orange-yellow to copper-pink before near-red petals fall. The rich purple new growth sets off the single flowers beautifully. A stunning shrubby China rose with sparsely prickly stems and flowers from summer through to autumn. It looks great planted in a sunny border or can even be grown as a small climber against a wall or fence.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.
