In celebration of our longest reigning British Monarch and her majesty's 90th Birthday on 21st April 2016.

This remarkable variety has maintained its popularity for over 60 years. It bears large pointed medium pink blooms that have a high centre. They appear throughout the summer and autumn and are double, with 38 petals. A vigorous plant that with light pruning, develops into an impressive shrub reaching as much as 8ft. Every few years it can be cut down hard to rejuvenate the rose and produce nice new growth. It has large , dark green, leathery foliage, and is an ideal rose for the back of the border, a specimen rose, or a substantial and colourful hedge. Well worth a place in any garden but does now seem to need spraying to keep it spotless. Fragrant.
