Climbing Étoile de Hollande has the same flowers ( but slightly larger) and the same powerful scent, but is very impressive when covered in crimson clusters during its first , most exuberant flowering. Climbing Étoile de Hollande is also a good repeater: an established plant will produce a few flowers continuously here and there until winter sets in. It is a lanky, prickly, erect grower, which means that it benefits from being taken down in winter and trained sideways to break into flower along its length. This also produces more leaves: both the bush and the climber are sparsely foliaged, though such leaves as they have are large. The gawkiness and vigorous climbing form can be softened by companion planting-clematis are the usual complement.
All the roses we sell have been field grown and lifted when the conditions are at their best. If ordering potted roses, as the plants will not start to put on any more root growth until the spring, please do not be surprised to find the compost fall away from the roots when you take the plant out of its pot. We use a high quality compost so you can incorporate this when you plant your rose.
