Plant details

Rosa 'Port Sunlight' is a vigorous shub rose suitable for growing at the back of a mixed border or trained as a climber against a wall. The foliage and young stems are bronze-red at first, maturing to dark green. It's extremely healthy and disease-resistant. In summer it bears rosette-shaped, apricot-peach double blooms with a strong pure tea fragrance.
