THE VICAR’S DAUGHTERS COLLECTION
Three beautiful roses bred by the Rev Joseph Pemberton
And named after his daughter’s.
Delicate soft pink and cream blooms fading to almost white. Flowering is most prolific in the spring, but is a little less so in summer. However the late summer and autumn show is quite something as the flowers are borne in huge panicles bearing the most highly coloured and longest lasting flowers of the year. If the spent flowers are not removed, large round red hips are produced which look most attractive among the autumn flowers. Good strong disease resistant foliage. Can really brighten up a dull autumn day. Shade tolerant and makes a good hedge Excellent Perfume.

This lovely old rose has been around a while but is just as popular as ever. A hybrid musk rose with the usual free flowering associated with this species of rose. The lovely rosette flowers are a rich apricot flushed pink and are borne in large arching trusses continually from summer to autumn. A superb strong growing shrub with very few thorns plus good dark green bronze glossy foliage. Completely hardy but does best in a sunny spot out of the wind. Can be grown in the garden or large container, is shade tolerant and will cope with poorer soils. Distinct Musk Fragrance.
