A tough and particularly healthy little rose that bears flowers of the most perfect formation - shallow cups of the purest rose pink. These hold their form to the end; the occasional petal falling back to give a pleasing effect. The young foliage is bronze at first, later becoming green. There is a strong, pure Old Rose fragrance that has been described as reminiscent of rose-based cosmetics.
‘Harlow Carr’ has an excellent bushy habit with upright and vigorous growth. It matures into an attractively rounded shrub with its flowers almost to ground level - a characteristic that we particularly favour. It is deserving of a prime spot in the border. It is also ideal for creating a short hedge.
