This is a very hardy rose, that is also a very vigorous grower. It sends up lots of shoots from the base of the bush, forming a large, arching shrub rose 5’ tall and wide. These English roses, make a nice specimen rose, where used as a focal point, the delicate pink flowers, appear on arching canes. The bush shows off the nodding flowers against luxuriant, healthy green foliage.
But it shows off its pink roses best when grown as a climber, where it will grow to around 10’. It is easily trained on trellises, and pillars, but will also grow well on arches, walls, and fences, or anywhere you want a climbing rose. Plant it near an entry way, to take full advantage of the beautiful blooms and wonderful fragrance.
