A climbing rose up to 4.5m high, with glossy green leaves and strongly scented, semi-double, pale pink flowers, repeat-flowering from midsummer to autumn; leaf-cutting bees may use rose leaves to make nests for their larvae.

Bears beautifully formed flowers, which nod gracefully on the stem. When the petals open they expose numerous stamens, providing an almost water lily-like effect. The flowers are a pale glowing pink and have a delicious fragrance with aspects of Old Rose, musk and myrrh. Named for the National Gardens Scheme.
