Large double flowers of white with an occasional blush of pink, they have tissue paper-like quality and a beautiful fragrance. Repeating throughout Spring and Autumn , it is one of the few shade tolerant climbers. Best on a wall, or pergola or large arch, the plant is vigorous and particularly in Spring will flower en masse.
Considering when it was bred 1879,
it still holds its own as a first choice for white fragrant climbers.

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.
