Description

A low-growing, hugely floriferous shrub rose with glossy, dark green foliage and clusters of rich red double blooms. Rewarding with minimal TLC, this rose is drought and disease resistant and doesn’t need complicated pruning. Just cut back by a third in late winter or early spring.

Care Tips

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.
