A very unusual rose, Raubritter, was raised by crossing a hybrid of R. macrantha with a rambler rose. The globular, thin-petalled, rose-pink blooms - rather reminiscent of the flowers of the Shell Rose, La Reine Victoria - come in large sprays, and last unblemished on the sprawling bush for a remarkably long time. They also look splendid cascading over a low wall. The small, dark leaves are undistinguihed and, later in the season, are subject to black spot; but even this fault, which can be remedied, does not distract from the pleasure Raubritter gives us each season. It is summer-flowering only but we always look forward to it ....
