An attractive cultivar of interesting white flowers with petals curled outwards. Suitable for cut flowers compositions.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: Flowers white, ca. 8 cm across, double, gathered in large inflorescences. Petals distinctively curled outwards. Bloom abundantly from June-July till the end of summer. Leaves rather small, glossy. Annual shoots are 2 m long, thin and supple, easy to train over supports.
HOW IT GROWS: A primitive climber – does not climb over supports but leans on them. The height of the plant depends on the support size, in Poland it is about 3 m. Grows over any type of support.
WHERE TO PLANT: Sunny and semi-shaded sites. Well-adapted to nearly every type of soil, but does not tolerate compacted, heavy or sandy and droughty ground. Thrives in light, moderately permeable soil of slightly acidic or neutral pH. Frost hardy (zone 6-8).
HOW TO PLANT AND MAINTAIN: Before planting immerse the plant container in water for 10-30 min. Place the root ball in a 40 x 40 x 40 cm hole with a 10 cm layer of well-rotten manure or compost, 0.5-1 cm deeper than it was before. Fill the hole with fertile soil. Does not require regular pruning. The plant is robust and produces numerous shoots in summer. To maintain the shrub's habit, shoots need to be tied to supports regularly as they grow.
HOW TO APPLY: The rose may be planted along natural supports, such as tall trees. The cultivar is recommended for growing along larger supports in parks and gardens of various styles. It will also grow over trellises, gates, walls and fences as well as arbours and pergolas. It's flexible and easily follows the support's shape. Suitable for cut flowers compositions.
