One of Warner's 100 best climbers. Classified as a bourbon although it has no declared parentage. It did not find favour until after WW II, but by 1957 it had risen to the top of England's Rose Society table of repeat-flowering climbers. It will grow to 10-12 feet and will flower until the frosts. Foliage may need protection against mildew and blackspot.
