This highly perfumed award winning rose is one our favourite shrub roses. Exceptionally large trusses of beautiful buff to ivory blooms with silvery pink edging. This rose is easily recognisable by its spikes of five petaled flowers thickly clustered on lofty stems. There can be few lovelier sights on a calm summers day, especially when viewed against a dark background. A tall commanding plant with dark glossy leaves. Should be planted out of the wind as the long stems can thrash around and become damaged if not tied in. A delightful and unusual shrub with a good long flowering period and very healthy. In a warm climate it can often be grown as a very attractive climber.

AWARDS: Royal National Rose Society Trial Ground Certificate 1975. Belfast Certificate Of Merit 1979. Baden Baden Gold Medal 1980. Glasgow Fragrance Award 1993. Portland Gold Medal 1993.
