Bred By David Austin
Colour Medium Pink
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Size Medium Shrub
Short Climber

Hardiness Hardy
Fragrance Fruit, honey, carnations
Repeating Good
Special Characteristics Repeat flowering. Perfectly shaped blooms

One of the most popular of our English Roses. The blooms are of perfect, cupped formation and of medium size; they are a very soft, clear pink at the centre, while the outer petals are almost white.

This is a flower of delicate shell-like beauty. The growth is excellent, showing signs of its grandparent Iceberg, with a smooth, rather ‘Musk Rose’ foliage and clean stems with only a few thorns.

It is strong and bushy with excellent repeat-flowering properties and will grow to form a shapely, well-rounded shrub.

It has a beautiful fragrance, with overtones of fruit, honey and carnation on a myrrh background.

Special Characteristics One of the most reliable of climbers.

Medium sized, silvery blush-pink flowers, deepening towards the centre, produced in clusters. The forerunner of the modern perpetual-flowering climbers, and still one of the best and most vigorous of this class. Healthy glossy foliage. Fresh, fruity fragrance. 10-15 ft.

Gratulerer, dette må være toppendagen for deg!
Jammen bra jeg ikke ble med deg i dag- jeg ville gått berserk på det plantesenteret der.
Dette unner jeg deg.

Nyt det!!

Etter fire glass vin nå, så skal jeg og nabo Jorunn ut med saks og lommelykt, på jakt! Og dæggærn som jeg skal drepe og skvise!
De nærmer seg boligområdene våre nemlig. De der sleipe slimete sakene...

god fredag kveld - og herved sendes en stor lykke til til Yngvar gravemann som skal til pers i morra tidlig. (stakkars mann, hilsen Lars, medfølende ektefelle med lignende erfaring)
