First introduced in 1865, this rose was a firm favourite of the renowned plantswoman Vita Sackville-West, and all the top designers are still scrambling for it today. It is one of the best climbers for a north facing wall, as the deep claret coloured flowers tend to fade in full sun. The main flush of flowers appear in mid summer, but it will continue to have smaller bursts until autumn. They are tolerant of poor soils, have few thorns, and can be grown as an open shrub if they are given support. We love it - and the RHS has given it their prestigeous Award of Garden Merit.Garden care: Avoid planting in a site where roses have recently been grown. Apply a balanced fertiliser and a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in late-winter or early-spring. Prune after flowering, reducing side-shoots to between two and four buds.
