Rosa 'Parkdirektor Riggers' is a repeat-flowering, climbing rose, bearing large clusters of blood-red flowers with a mild fragrance. Leaves are dark-green.

Being more tolerant of shade than many roses, Rosa 'Parkdirektor Riggers' is an excellent climber for a north-facing wall. Grow it at the back of a mixed, herbaceous border up a trellis against a wall, or grow up an arbour or other similar support. 

For best results, deadhead spent flowers and feed fortnightly with a potash-rich fertiliser.
