A sport of R. gallica ‘Officinalis’, sharing all of its virtues except colour - the crimson flowers are striped with white, giving them an attractively fresh appearance. Occasionally a flower will revert to the colour of its parent. Although it is only once flowering, it is a very showy plant, producing a mass of blooms with a delicious Old Rose fragrance.  It forms a bushy, compact shrub that is extremely tough, healthy and reliable. Can also be grown as a hedge. (Prior to 1600). 4ft x 4 ft.
