Tess of the d'Urbervilles Climbing
This variety makes a superb and striking sight when grown as a climber.
It bears large fragrant flowers of bright crimson coloring. They are of a nice, deeply cupped shape in the early stages; the petals turning back to give a less formal, more domed flower. They bend over with their weight, to give an elegant effect.
The growth is robust and bushy with large, dark green leaves.
There is a good old rose fragrance.
This rose is excellent for cutting and displaying in the home.
Named after the character from Thomas Hardy’s novel.
