Plant details

Sometimes called 'Harwanna' in very precise catalogues, this fine shrub was launched by Harkness in 1989 to become an instant success. It is a robust and healthy rose which will grow in many positions, although it is at its finest in full sun and with lavish feeding. The soft ivory-white blooms with their dramatic orange stamens appear very early, often in May, and continue in generous flushes until the autumn. It may be pruned hard in a massed display, or allowed to reach full size as a specimen shrub. As a shrub rose, it is best pruned in late summer, after flowering has finished. Prune most stems lightly. To encourage young, vigorous growth, cut back a few of the oldest stems each year. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
