Adelaide d'Orleans Rambling Rose

Adelaide d'Orleans is a beautiful free flowering evergreen rambling rose. It belongs to the Sempervirens family that includes some of the most elegant and graceful ramblers. It was much loved by the Victorians and considered a true 'cottage garden plant' although it was not introduced from France until 1826. The flowers open as delicate pink buds fading quite quickly to a creamy white and are held in profuse bunches on delicate stems. It has a very gentle primrose scent and it will tolerate light shade.

Great for your garden

Adelaide d'Orleans holds its beautiful delicate, semi-double flowers in great profusion on fairly delicate stems and, in common with many species rambler roses, is best viewed from below. It is, therefore, perfect for arches and pergolas where the sweetly scented blooms can be seen to their best advantage. The very lush foliage is evergreen in all but the worst winters. It will tolerate some shade and can scramble into a hedge where it will flower beautifully on the 'sunny side'. As a rambler it needs just light pruning and will, therefore, grow quite happily with any of the later flowering plants in our range of UK grown clematis, such as the viticellas. They can grow together and be pruned together with the clematis extending the flowering season.

Adelaide d'Orleans was bred by Monsieur Jacques. Jacques was head gardener at the Chateau de Neuilly, home of the Duc d'Orleans (later King Louis Philippe) and named the rose after the Duchess, Louise Marie Adelaide de Bourbon. He worked with the wild species rose Sempervirens, producing two of the best hybrids, Adelaide d'Orleans and Felicite et Perpetue. It can be seen in absolute perfection covering the arches in the walled garden at Mottisfont Abbey
