Description

Ideal for growing in a container, but also works well in a border and makes an excellent cut flower.

Rose ‘Aphrodite’ produces spiral shaped buds opening to large, full, cup-shaped flowers in soft pink with a warm spicy scent. It has excellent resistance to rain – the water just runs off the petals without leaving them soggy.

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.
