Plant details

This sempervirens rambler rose has vigorous branching growth and is almost thornless. Its dark green glossy foliage is almost evergreen. Large clusters of neat pink buds open into small creamy white rosettes that are lightly fragrant, in summer. It was introduced in 1827 and has been widely grown ever since in larger gardens or where a rose is wanted to scramble into a tree. 'Felicite Perpetue' grows well on poorer soils and can tolerate shade quite happily. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
