Masses of fully double, slightly fragrant, rose-pink flowers on long stems from July to September and large, dark green leaves. A mass planting of this tall, repeat-flowering, bush rose makes a great informal hedge for an open, sunny site. One of our recommended plants, it's more disease-resistant than other varieties and makes excellent cut-flowers.
Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is at soil level.
All our roses are field grown. In October/November they are dug up and potted. However, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when winter planting. Some suppliers send out 'bare root' plants unpotted, but we don't as it is easier to manage them on the nursery in pots.
