Product Information

There is something wonderfully romantic about old-fashioned roses, famed for their amazing fragrance and beautiful flowers. ‘Comte de Chambord’ is a genuinely old Damask rose, first introduced in 1860, and it has been hugely successful ever since.

This is a deciduous rose, so it’ll lose all of its leaves in autumn, with fresh new foliage appearing the following spring and quickly covering the thorny stems, just in time for the flower buds start growing.

The huge lilac-pink flowers that grow to 10cm (4in) across are fully double and absolutely packed with petals, bursting open in from June to September, and as you’d expect from an old rose, they have the most sublime, sweet and heady fragrance.

Supplied as a freshly potted, professional quality plant in a 3L pot, growing to a height of 1.2m (4ft) and a width of 90cm (3ft).

Top Tips

To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly.

Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and don’t worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.

When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.

Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.

Care Information

  • Roses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought-dry.
  • Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.
  • Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, so add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole if necessary and plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is around 3cm below soil level.
  • Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry. Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
  • For best results, feed roses in late-March/April and again in late July.
