An old rose of yesteryear and a world wide favourite for over 150 years. Fat squat buds open to reveal large globular blooms in shades of buff yellow with hints of pink and gold. Blooms from summer until the first frosts and is absolutely beautiful in full flower. This vigorous climber is best on a wall or pillar and will produce more blooms if the branches are bent to the horizontal position. Reasonably healthy but may need spraying in some areas to keep it clean.
Best in a warm spot. Fragrant and highly recommended.
