    i just bought one of these today, in a standard form and it's very pretty.
    Does anyone else have one?
    Does it need special attention?

    Many thanks

    lynne,
    Had never heard of it till now, so I had to get the book out and see what it looked like.
    I expect its in flower now? It apparently needs a warm sheltered position and it belongs to the rose family. Grows up to 5ft by 5ft, but what happens with a standard I dont know, reckon you'll need to prune.

    I'm guessing this is the one, apart from being a standard.
