A wonderful old rose, we have two plants of this one growing, and these
were flowering on a tall weeping stem. Although classed as a climber
there are barely any thorns, so the rose needs a strong support otherwise
it will sprawl onto the ground. This one is famously trained onto a
fence at the Flemington Racecourse, Victoria, Australia and has been
trained to flower for the famous "Melbourne Cup" race held annually in
November. Bred in France 1904. Sweetly fragrant according to one of
my books.... one day I'll remember to test this fact!
