"It is good to be able to name a rose for our own town where we have recently planted a public rose garden. This is a healthy and robust climbing rose with flowers of clear bright red with occassional white tints. It repeats flowers well into the autumn. £1 from the proceeds of the sale of each rose will be donated to the Rotary Club of Attleborough for the next three years for distribution to local charities. Scent is like 'Musk' (public opinion)"
