Voted 'Rose of the year 2014'
Voted as Rose of the year for 2014, this repeat flowering floribunda rose will flower continuously throughout the summer if deadheaded regularly. The spicily-scented, cup-shaped flowers appear in clusters (between five and eleven in each) and are a delicious shade of tangerine. These open over time to reveal their yellow centre, and look very beautiful set against the a glossy green foliage, which is noted for its excellent resistance to disease. A sublime choice for the border. All our roses are grown in an open field and then dug up when the weather conditions are right in October or November. Some suppliers send out their roses as 'bare root' plants (ie without pots or compost), but we pot ours up as it helps to keep the roots hydrated and in good condition. As they are dormant throughout the winter, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when you take them out of their pots. The roses can be kept in their pots throughout the winter provided they are kept well fed and watered, however ideally they should planted out as soon as possible. They will already have been cut back so no further pruning will be required, apart from snipping off any tips that have died back. Routine pruning can begin in late winter the year after planting.
