Rose Of The Week
English Shrub rose 2010 4ft
A new English rose which is a particularly tough and reliable variety of medium size, with flowers of deep glowing pink. They are shallowly cupped at first; the outer petals eventually reflexing back and revealing an attractive button eye.
'England's Rose' flowers more or less continually from June right through until the end of the season, in October or even November.
The blooms are nicely held in large clusters. This is a healthy weather resistant rose, even in periods of continual rain the blooms do not ball and the petals drop cleanly.
It will form an attractive, bushy shrub of about 4ft in height and 3ft across, although it could easily grow taller if pruned lightly.
An ideal variety for planting in a rose border or for mixing with perennials.
The fragrance is particularly fine; strong warm and spicy with a classic Old Rose character.
Essential reading for all English Rose enthusiasts.
