This is one of the most popular striped roses. Its large flowers are plummy pink-red streaked with very pale pink and the scent is superb. The bush is healthy and vigorous and the flowers aren't much affected by soggy weather.

For best results with this rose, especially if your soil is poor or if your site is shady, we recommend using a rose feed.
