A very popular vigorous rambler which is almost thornless.
Pretty blooms of violet streaked with white fading to grey in large clusters and show prominent yellow stamens.
A lovely sight in full bloom in the summer and flowers a little earlier than most ramblers.
Pale green pointed foliage which is fairly disease free.
Very useful as it will also grow on a North wall or up through a tree.
This is the best known of the three similar violet-purple ramblers, the others being 'Rose Marie Viaud' and 'Violette'.
Also known as 'Blue Rambler' 'Veilchenblau' & 'Violet Blue'
Royal Horticultural Society Award Of Garden Merit 1993.
