I tried everywhere to find this rose a few years ago. I was bewitched by its beauty, still am. It’s a very healthy rose and repeat flowering, what more could one want? …….erm perfume, its only downside.

I must stop taking photographs lol:-)

Oh, I know what you mean when you 'fall' for a rose. I was bewitched by a Peter Beales' climber called 'Crimson Cascade', no scent but had to have it because of its intricate shape and stunning colour. That was after promising myself I would buy no more roses without scent. Hey-ho, what can you do?
I love the colour of your plant.

Thanks Anget, I fell for Jacqueline Du Pre and everywhere gad sold out. Naturally I tried Austins first. Eventually found one, should be here soon. No idea where I'll put it:-/

Now look here Rose, you know I'm going to have to google it now. I hope it's ugly ....:-))

Yes I googled it:-) It is not ugly, but is a climber and I only have room for one of those and it's Mortimer Sackler :-)

An absolute beauty, BA! Love the colours, a keen favourite for me..

Lovely looker, I can understand the obsession with one rose, mine is with Whisky Mac, I first came across it at Chelsea show decades ago and have always wanted one but never really got round to it or had room

But this blog has triggered the need again, still no space, and now I've looked at J D Pre I want one of those as well

Thinking cap on, maybe widen a border?

Yours is lovely, BA.. I am as bad as you. I went to the GC on Friday with my list, but I spotted a beauty and of course it came home with me..its name is 'Birthday Girl'.
