RBG Kew and us are gonna have some words! How dare they merge Rosa mulliganii into another species? This was named to honor beloved Seattle icon, Brian Mulligan, who was Director of Washington Park Arboretum for 27 years. Very vigorous beautiful rose with fragrant white flowers and blood-red hips. And the foliage turns autumnal colors of yellow and red as well. Be aware that you are loosing The Beast as this really needs A Lot of room and is displayed to its fullest most awesome glory when given large trees such as our Douglas Fir to climb upon.
