A sister to 'The Countryman' with stronger, more upright growth. Perfect little scrolled buds expand rather surprisingly into quite large rosette-shaped flowers of beautiful Old Rose character and rich pink colouring. The growth is tall and vigorous, making it perhaps more suitable for middle or the back of the border, although easy access should be allowed to appreciate the particularly strong, superb and perfectly balanced Old Rose fragrance, the quintessential rose fragrance. Very healthy and reliable and is also tolerant of partial shade. It can also be grown as a short climber. Winner of the James Mason Award in 2002 and voted the nation's favourite rose by BBC viewers in 2006. Highly Recommended. Outstanding Perfume. Named after the famed English writer and garden designer (1843-1932)
