Rosa 'Dorothy Perkins'

The small pink scented flowers are carried in trusses, It has long flexible growth, it is best not planted on a wall as it can get mildew if there is insufficient airflow around it, this despite its wichuraiana blood, bred by Jackson and Perkins in 1901 it became hugely popular and the well known stores are named after it (and not the other way around) worth the effort as it flowers later and longer than a lot of ramblers and is quite a show.
