Large-Flowered Climbers. Bourbons and Hybrid Perpetuals. Ards Rover [Dickson, 1898]. The straggly habit, prickly stems, and tendency to mildew which characterise this popular and vigorous Hybrid Perpetual-type climber are all redeemed by the opulent, dark crimson flowers profusely borne in midseason and thereafter sporadically. They are large (12cm), substantial, double, and sweetly scented. When well grown, the foliage too is large and handsome.

Geschwind's Hybrids of 'De La Grifferaie'....
'Asta von Parpart' (Geschwind, introduced by Lambert, 1909). this is one of the prettiest of all roses (plate 25). The flowers (4-5cm) come in small clusters and open flat from fat buds to reveal a mass of crinkly petals around a quilled and quartered centre. They are dark pink or pale crimson with a hint of purple, paler at the edges and on the undersides. The foliage is neat, glaucous, almost blue with reddish margins, and accompanied by large prickles. the scent is a mixture of musk and sweetness. The plant is moderately vigorous, hardy, and grows to 3m.
