This rose is one of the most attractive members of the Wichuraiana group. Vigorous climber that can also be grown in pots with care. Tolerates semi-shade. Flowers profusely in spring with sporadic re-flowering afterwards. The flower can consist of as many as 40 petals. It has a light silvery pink colour and is very fragrant. Tolerates poor soils, adapts well to espaliers, pillars and forced forms due to its strong vigour.
