Rosa City of York - Climbing Roses. 4 Litre Pots.

A vigorous white climbing rose (technically it's a rambler) with nice dark glossy foliage to create an exciting contrast. The flowers are about 12cm wide, semi-double (good for bees), exposing the yellow stamens, and well-scented most of the time, although hot weather can dial it down significantly. To 4.5m

Growing City of York Roses

Good, well drained soil with a decent amount of sun is all you need, and something to grow it up. Roses thrive on clay as long as it is not too waterlogged in winter.

To encourage a good second bloom, it is important to deadhead the first flush of flowers promptly. If they begin to form hips, it probably won't re-bloom unless it is in ideal conditions.

Did You Know?

Bred in 1939 (but for obvious reasons was not commercially available until after 1945) by Mathias Tantau (1882 - 1953) in Germany, where it was originally known as Direktor Benschop. It won the gold medal at the 1950 ARS American Rose Society Show.

The parents were Professor Gnau and Dorothy Perkins.
