David Austin Recommended Variety
A vigorous rambler of typical multiflora character, producing large, closely packed clusters of small cupped flowers. They flowers are a beautiful and unusual mix of colours. They open dark magenta with a white centre – and are occasionally streaked white - with an attractive boss of bright yellow stamens. As the blooms age, they turn dark violet, finally fading to lilac-grey. Can appear almost blue on occasions. The foliage is light green and the growth almost thornless. There is a fresh, fruity scent, often with rich orange notes. Rather stiff growth, with many strong stems shooting from the base of the plant. A position in partial shade often creates the richest colouring. Ideal for walls, pillars and pergolas.15ft.
