The beautiful climbing rose from David Austin, Rosa
Tess of the D'Urberville (Ausmove), named after Thomas Hardy's heroine, has large, bright crimson flowers and a delightful Old Rose fragrance. It is a repeat flowerer, flowering freely from early in the season, and the blooms are a lovely addition to flower arrangements. A bushy, robust rose, with large, dark green leaves and stems that arch elegantly under the weight of the flowers. Perfectly positioned towards the rear of the border, it can also be trained up a trellis to cover a wall or fence.
Pot Size: 6L
Height and Spread: 250cm x 175cm over 5 years
Preferred Soil Type: Any free-draining soil
Position: Open sunny position / Very light shade
Flowering Period: June – September
Care: Remove faded flowers; prune in March
Please note, in the autumn this rose is supplied as a potted plant, and will not produce any new roots until spring so it is usual for the soil to fall away from the roots when you remove it from the pot. It is best to plant it immediately.
