Rosa filipes 'Kiftsgate'
Common name: Kiftsgate rose
Rosa filipes 'Kiftsgate' is a rambler or rambling rose that grows to an enormous size, nearly smothering a tree across from the Korean Garden. It had been strangling the robinia across the road but was moved to this spot. The fragrant white flowers in early summer are followed by masses of tiny orange-red hips.
The original plant of this cultivar is said to be the largest rose in England, measuring 15 metres high by 28 metres across! The rose was discovered in the garden at Kiftsgate Court in England in the 1930s.
