'Hannah King'. Another breeding from the stable of 'Thornfree Wonder' and 'Veilchenblau', 'Hannah King' is a rambler, with lavender-pink flowers on a strong plant. The blooms are cupped and double with a strong fragrance. Bred in 1984, Ken describes it on his registration papers as lavender-pink with a white base, borne in clusters which are close and numerous. The leaves are big, mid-green and, like all Ken's roses, healthy. Regrettably 'Hannah King' is not available commercially, but I have just this summer seen an example of it growing along a fence line at Kemp House. This was another lost rose, but maybe, now found, we can propagate it for more people to enjoy.
