The New Dawn was introduced in 1930 and was an important step in the quest to breed continuously flowering climbers. All the leading rose growers in the 20th century used this rose to develop their own varieties. Interestingly, it was the first plant ever to be granted a patent. A vigorous grower with dark, glossy foliage, The New Dawn bears sweetly scented, double, blush pink flowers over a long period and can easily reach 5m. Will tolerate shade and is useful as a cut flower.
