Rose 'Albertine'

This vigorous rambler was developed in France and named by the Barbier Brothers. One of the most floriferous and intensely scented climbers. An incredible eight-week display begins with copper buds opening to sweetly fragrant, salmon-pink flowers, aging with grace to almost white. 'Albertine' flowers in a loose mass of charming irregular petals. Adaptable to any vertical space, `Albertine' can be grown over a trellis or trained against a sunny wall. Renowned for its ability to thrive on neglect in mild climates. WICHURANA RAMBLER, 1921.

How to grow

Plant in an open, sunny position (at least 5-6 hours of direct sunlight each day), in free-draining, neutral soil that is rich in organic matter. Water deeply to encourage strong roots when establishing and provide supplementary watering during dry periods. Roses are heavy feeders and will benefit from organic fertiliser, twice-yearly in heavy soils (spring and late summer) or four times in sandy soil. Deadhead regularly for repeat flowering. Prune in late-winter for size and shape, leaving new long canes to produce next season's flowers. Tie or fan canes into position.
