This lovely old rambler is a wonderfully free growing rose and is one of our favourite ramblers.
The flowers have two rows of deep violet petals that are quite showy and are produced in clusters.
The small flowers appear abundantly in the first flush of bloom but does not flower again, as it concentrates on its growth for the next year.
It is a healthy vigorous grower and can put on 10-15ft of growth in its first season.
Once established the long canes should be trained horizontally for the best quality blooms and the most pleasing affect.
Healthy light green foliage, and very few thorns.
A great rose for trellis work or training on walls.
A very attractive rose with a pleasant scent.
Bred in France. 1921.
