MME. GREGOIRE STAECHLIN – Old Fashioned Climbing Rose which flowers only in the Spring

MME.-GREGOIRE-STAECHLIN

Bred by Pedro Dot, Spain, this magnificent rose is sometimes listed as “Spanish Beauty” which this rose most certainly is – the swirling waved petals of mid pink with slightly crimson flush on the reverse remind one of a Spanish dancer waving her frivolous skirts!

Mme. Gregoire Staechlin has the ability to stop one in their tracks when you see her flowering profusely on a warm spring day.  Every cane produces masses of almost single flowers with ruffled and waved petals exuding the most heady old-rose fragrance.  The flowering period is only around four weeks but this rose should be planted for the experience of four weeks of glory!

This is a strong, vigorous climber which will easily cover 5 metres but can be kept trimmed to an archway – however, pruning should be kept to a minimum after flowering as the rose produces the most beautiful pear-shaped hips throughout the late summer and these hips are a magnificent sight as they ripen.
