Description: 'Elizabeth' is a vigorous very large deciduous climber with bronze young trifoliate leaves, mid green with age. Slightly scented pale pink flowers with a satin sheen to 6cm in width have pale yellow stamens. Flowers late spring to early summer with occasional later flowers.

Care: Plant in a moisture-retentive, well-drained soil, with the roots and base of the plant kept cool and shaded by other plants or a layer of pebbles at the base. Plant with the crown 5-8cm deep to encourage shoots to grow from below ground level. Best in a sheltered sunny situation. Propagate by layering or semi-hardwood cuttings. Prune after flowering to keep a manageable height.
