This is one of the all-time greats in rose breeding, and has deservedly won many awards. Its combination of high-quality blooms and wonderfully sweet fragrance on a plant that grows to the size of a big shrub makes it a perfect subject for a garden, equally at home on a fence, pergola or wall. It is the most popular climbing rose in England. Throughout summer and autyumn, ‘Compassion’ is completely repeat-flowering. It bears large salmon-pink apricot-shaded blooms that are filled with about 36 petals. They are borne either singly or in clusters of 3 amid the large dark green leathery foliage. The plant itself is extremely healthy with reasonalbly vigorous growth and a bushy, branching habit.
