Rose 'Cecile Brunner' (Climbing)
Bred in France in 1881, this continuously flowering rose produces large airy clusters of fragrant flowers with a sweet musky aroma on a near-thornless plant. From elegant buds, favoured for use in button-holes, the flowers open to reveal coral pink petals that fade to white. POLYANTHA, C.1881
Plant in an open, sunny position, 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 to maintain density and shape.
