St. Swithun (cl)

Rosa English Rose

St. Swithun has very large, open-cupped blooms filled with frilly petals, in a lovely soft pink, fading to white at the edge of the petals. The growth is tall and vigorous, with large, disease-resistant leaves. This rose may also be grown as a climber - in fact it is one of the best English Rose climbers. St Swithun flowers freely, repeating very quickly and is particularly tough, reliable and healthy. There is a strong pure myrrh fragrance, typical of the English Roses. Summer prune to maintain it as a shrub and encourage quicker repeat flowering.
