A magnificent rambling-style climber for our hot climate, Lamarque is one of the most popular white repeat-flowering climbers in the world.
Bred by an amateur rose breeder in 1830, it will flower with pure white buds opening to rich cream, almost lemon yellow toward the centre. Well known for its beauty, the blooms appear as clusters of tattered tissue and with this elegance, a strong fragrance. Once established, the plant is hardy and vigorous with unusual pointed grey-green leaves.
Excellent for a large pergola,
5-6 metres high x 3-4 metres wide.
Bred by Maréchal of France in 1830.
Planting, Position & Preparation
Roses require 5-6 hours of full sun per day for best performance. Roses tolerate a wide range of soil types, but your garden bed must be well drained. If your soil is lacking in quality or drainage, mix a premium potting mix or mulch or your own compost into your soil. Dig a hole approx.. 500 x 500 x 300mm deep. Plant your rose halfway up the main trunk, do not cover the graft or the trunk where branches begin. Water in well. If winter rains do not occur, water your rose every two weeks. Do not feed your rose at this time. Feed during early spring with a well-balanced slow release fertiliser.
