St. Swithun Climbing
David Austin Recommended Variety
The soft pink flowers are neatly formed in the shape of a flat rosette filled with petals, with a small button eye in the centre. The flowers tend to turn towards us on the branch, just as we would wish in a climbing rose. The growth is tall and vigorous, with a plentiful coverage of foliage. The greyish-green leaves are large, smooth and highly disease-resistant. This rose is quite superb when trained as a climber - in fact it is one of the best of all climbers - but it may also be grown as a tall shrub. St. Swithun flowers freely, repeats very quickly and is particularly tough, and reliable. There is a strong pure myrrh fragrance, typical of the English Roses. 8 ft.
