This is one of the classic roses, introduced in 1868 and cherished for generations for its lavish and unsophisticated flower display, and its ease of cultivation, not least the thornless stems which make pruning a pleasure. It is usually seen trained on a house wall, but mildew can be a problem where air cannot circulate, and it is better grown on a pillar, arch or pergola, and can even be pruned as a large shrub. Deadhead regularly to maintain good continuity The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Hi.....It says full sun. Uuuum I've got mine in part shade is that why I'm not getting a mass of flowers. I'm happy to move it if need be, however it has started to get a lot of buds on it and this is only it's first real year where it's planted as it was a diddy thing I planted last year?
I have mine in full sun and trained up a wigwam. I have had it about 3 or 4 years and get very few flowers from it in spite of mulching and feeding it well. Perhaps it does not like sea air, but I don't find it a very good "doer".
