'Francesca' gets its buff apricot colour from the very early large flowered rose 'Sunburst' and its spreading habit of growth from the shrub 'Danae'
Beautiful pointed buds in the early stages, which produce lovely loose nodding blooms of buff apricot fading to cream.
The blooms are borne on long sprays on a tall spreading bush with healthy soft green foliage.
The flower production is excellent in the spring and carries on right through the summer and into autumn.
An excellent shrub rose which combines well with bulbs and perennials of a similar colouring in a mixed border.
In warmer areas it can retain its foliage in the winter in the manner of the Noisette Roses.
A healthy and highly recommended shrub rose which is well worth a place in any garden.
