Rosa filipes 'Kiftsgate'

Rose filipes 'Kiftsgate', Rosa 'Kiftsgate', Rambler Roses


Extremely vigorous, award-winning Rosa filipes 'Kiftsgate' is a fast-growing, large rambler rose with huge sprays of highly fragrant, semi-double, creamy-white flowers, adorned with deep yellow stamens. Produced in abundance on long thorny stems bearing pointed, light green leaves, the flowers are followed by crops of decorative, vivid, orange-red hips in the fall, extending the season of interest. Sturdy and disease resistant, this rampant rambling rose is ideal for covering unsightly buildings, large walls or scrambling through big trees. A giant rose for those that have the room for it!

  • Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Blooms overwhelmingly once in early or mid summer.
  • Grows up to 25-40 ft. tall (7-12 m) and 20-50 ft. wide (6-15 m). 'Kiftsgate' is so rampant that pruning cannot restrain it, and most of the shrub will normally be out of reach.
  • Best grown in full sun, in rich, fertile, moist, well-drained soils. Tolerates some shade and poor soils.
  • Very disease resistant.
  • Propagate by hardwood cuttings in autumn or by chip budding in summer
  • Introduced in United Kingdom by E. Murrell in 1954.
