Position: full sunSoil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soilRate of growth: fast-growing Flowering period: June and July Flower colour: blackish-redHardiness: fully hardyOpulent, fragrant, fully double, blackish-red flowers on stiff stems from June to July and leathery, dark green leaves. This vigorous, repeat-flowering, climbing rose is perfect for an open, sunny site with fertile, moist, well-drained soil. The dramatic, dark-crimson blooms are best displayed against a light background, such as a white-washed wall.Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 20-30cm (8-12in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the ‘bud union’ (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.All our roses are field grown. In October/November they are dug up and potted. However, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don’t be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when winter planting. Some suppliers send out ‘bare root’ plants unpotted, but we don’t as it is easier to manage them on the nursery in pots.
