'Albertine' Rambler Rose - 5.5L Pot
‘Albertine’ is a large, vigorous growing, rambling rose that flowers throughout summer. In June and July it blooms and produces masses of very fragrant, double, salmon-pink flowers which contrast beautifully against the dark glossy foliage.
Popular and reliable ‘Albertine’ is perfect for training over an arch, pergola or wall and also makes an excellent cut flower.
Fully hardy, this rambling rose will thrive in any aspect, except north facing, in a sunny spot in the garden.

RHS Award of Garden Merit
The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
