Souvenir du Docteur Jamain (Climbing Rose)
(Climbing Hybrid Perpetual) Very highly scented, double, velvety dark red blooms with bright yellow enticing stamens, borne in clusters. Tolerant of poor soils and shade. Suitable to be grown against a north wall. Requires plenty of liquid feeds.
Like the good red wine that the colour of this rose portrays, it needs careful placing away from scorching sun to mature to a sumptuous rare beauty of shape, texture and bouquet. Bred by Lacharme.
