An impressive variety, bearing masses of very large blooms almost continually from June until the first frosts. Beautiful at all stages, the pink buds gradually open to many petalled, incurved cups with a strong, warm myrrh fragrance. The open blooms are a lovely rich glowing pink at the centre, paling towards the edges. Over time, a cluster of golden stamens is revealed at the heart of each bloom. Ideal for the middle or back of the border; it works equally well planted on its own, creating a dramatic display

A very healthy and vigorous rose, it will quickly form a larger than average shrub

The name was inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s epic poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
