Notes:
Tim Clapp of Mattocks Roses says, "If I have to choose a favourite that would come with me to a desert Island, it would be 'Summer Wine'. This is a wonderful climbing rose with semi-double peach flowers and an exquisite fragrance. It simply out performs other climbers time and time again, and easily matured the quickest when planted in our new rose garden. Semi-double flowers are not everyone's cup of tea, however this one has something about it."
