Description

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.

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.
