Look no further for a delightfully elegant and subtle climbing rose to decorate vertical garden displays!
‘Starlight Symphony’ produces a floral show fitting of its name and was even crowned the RHS ‘Rose of the Year’ in 2019. This truly outstanding variety bursts to life during summer, with creamy-white petals delicately placed around a peach stamen.
An exceptionally healthy climber, this is reliable and free flowering. This variety produces a spicy, yet subtle, perfume, which fills the air without being intrusive.
Sustainably grown in peat-free compost, when grown this rose provides superb shelter for small mammals and birds, thanks to the healthy foliage that grows. Climbing roses are a delight for the environment, as they grow quickly with plenty of leaves - perfect to produce oxygen.
This rose will produce hips during autumn, containing the seeds of the plant. The bright colour will attract plenty of birds, which will eat the hips and distribute the seeds. The trusses of flowers seen on this climbing rose turn into hundreds of handy hips.
Roses, such as ‘Starlight Symphony’, play an important role in ecosystems producing food for pollinators such as bees and hoverflies. Our roses have been grown to be rich in pollen, with flower shapes that allow the insects to reach it easily, and their long flowering season makes them extra valuable. Rose plants also host a range of insects that in turn provide food for birds.
