More Details

One of the best deep pink bush roses for cutting, with a lovely scent. It is very tall stemmed (and so ideal for arranging), usually single-headed, bright magenta pink blooms and has very few thorns.

It also has huge staying power, lasting well over a week in the house, and opens from a stylish pointed bud into a frilly rosette shape. A magnificent repeat-flower, with the scent of fresh tea, turning lemony as the flowers age.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Before planting bare-root roses, soak roots in a bucket of water for at least two hours. Prune any damaged roots and dig a hole 30-45cm deep and 60cm wide. Roses like heavy compact soil, so be sure to heal them in well. To aid quick establishment, sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base of the planting hole.
Care Tips Deadhead in summer after flowering, prune in winter. Water well until established, add fertiliser and mulch each spring.
Flowering June - November
