A lovely sport of the beautiful ‘Mary Rose’. It shares all of the virtues of its parent, and is similar in every way, except that the flowers are white, occasionally with the slightest touch of buff pink at the centre. The overall effect is excellent, producing a mass of flowers and continuing to bloom at regular intervals throughout the summer. The individual blooms are in the form of medium-sized, loose-petalled rosettes of typical Old Rose character. There is delicious Old Rose fragrance with hints of honey and almond blossom, which becomes much stronger in warmer weather. ‘Winchester Cathedral’ is a first class garden shrub with well-shaped, twiggy, bushy growth and nice foliage. It looks particularly beautiful in a mixed border mingling with other plants and perennials. Named after one of the finest Cathedrals in Britain.
