Large fragrant flowers of bright crimson colouring.
They are of a nice, deeply cupped shape in the early stages; the petals turning back to give a less formal but still attractive flower.
Healthy dark green foliage.
It has a lovely Old Rose fragrance.
It can also be grown as a short climber and will probably reach 8 or 9ft.
Very useful as it can also tolerate a North wall situation.
Named after the character from Thomas Hardy's novel.
