NEW ROSES FOR 2012
CITY OF YORK
Rambling Rose. 1945. 15ft.
This lovely old Rambler has been around a while, but we have included it in our Rambler section as we have had so many requests for it as it is considered to be one of the best of the repeat ramblers. Most ramblers are only summer flowering, but this is one of the few that repeat well. It produces large clusters of creamy white blooms with attractive yellow centres, plus quite a good perfume for a rambler. Leathery glossy green foliage which has excellent disease resistance. A very versatile rose as it can be grown up trees, is shade tolerant, can be grown on any aspect including a North wall and will cope with poor soils.
Won an American Rose Society Gold Medal in 1950
Bred by Tantau. Germany 1939-1945. There are some date differences of opinion regarding this rose.
AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER 2011
