Rosa 'Compassion'

Plant details

Rosa 'Compassion' is a repeat-flowering hybrid tea rose, bearing masses of fully double, apricot-pink flowers from July to September, in contrast with dark green, glossy foliage. It's idea for growing at the back of a sunny border, particularly if it can be trained against a wall. It's also perfect for growing up a pergola, where its intense fragrance can be better appreciated.

For best results grow Rosa 'Compassion' in fertile, moist, well-drained soil, in full sun. Plant it with contrasting dark-flowered plants to complement the light-coloured blooms. Deadhead spent blooms regularly to prolong flowering.

We have removed thick ivy from the walls of our 20yr old brick built house. No damage to bricks or mortar, but despite use of scraper, wire brush, brick acid, flamegun, algon etc, we are unable to get rid of the residue of aerial roots. Any ideas please! In desperation we are even thinking of replanting ivy! but would rather not as a)we have lovely climbing roses which we'd rather not 'mask', and b) the ivy was really thick and populated by birds (v noisy dawn chorus) and spiders!
