This rose is a very popular climber and a prolific award winner. Compassion has perfectly formed hybrid tea shaped blooms of salmon pink shaded with an apricot orange. The high quality blooms appear throughout the summer and autumn and repeat well and quickly either singly or in clusters of 3 or more. Very vigorous and healthy with glossy dark green leathery foliage. For best results plant in full sun but also does really well on a north wall. Perfect for planting up arches etc. One of the all time best climbing roses and a super rose for cutting. Strong sweet perfume.
