A rose of delicate charm - its flowers being beautifully formed; their colour a soft glowing pink at the centre, shading to palest pink on the outer petals. When the petals open they expose numerous stamens, providing an almost water lily-like effect.
It has strong, elegantly arching growth with polished dark green foliage.
This rose would produce a wonderful effect towards the back of the border. It will also make an excellent climber. It is highly disease-resistant.
There is a strong and delicious fragrance with aspects of Old Rose, musk and myrrh.
The Generous Gardener has been named to mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of the National Gardens Scheme which has, over the years, contributed so much to charity and made it possible for us to see so many beautiful gardens.
