Early into flower, this healthy bush rose will keep producing its multi-petalled blooms on into autumn. The colour will vary from apricot to peachy pink, depending on what weather the season brings. A light spicy fragrance makes this an ideal rose for cutting.
Before planting bare root roses, soak roots in a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. Dig a hole that will accommodate the root ball comfortably and, to aid establishment, sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base before planting.
