Rose Of The Week

SPECIAL CHILD

Floribunda

1997  2ft-2ft 6ins

A superb low growing floribunda with masses of well shaped blooms of blush pink.    Lovely shiny foliage and a good long flowering period. One of our favourite roses as it always seems to be in bloom and has excellent health. The quantity of flowers is quite outstanding.   When this comes into bloom at the nursery it causes plenty of interest and we sell out quite quickly.

A lovely gift for that "Special Child". Scented. Named for CLIC. Children with cancer and leukaemia.

Also known as 'Glacier Magic'

GOLD STANDARD AWARD WINNER 2006 SPECIAL CHILD  (Taniripsa) Since 2006 a few roses are selected each year for this prestigious award.   Based on cumulative information from invited independent judges, the Gold Standard is awarded to worthy varieties.  Health,  floriferousness,  scent and commercial appeal are all considered key factors in the final choice. For further information  please see  Gold Standard Roses on the Main Menu.

Floribunda.  2011.  3ft.

A spellbinding new floribunda with fascinating colour blooms of silvery white, shaded and blotched purple mauve in an almost surreal combination. They are medium sized and double with multi petals prettily arranged creating an attractive ruffled appearance. The scented flowers are carried in large trusses and borne plentifully on a bushy plant of neat even habit that grows easily and is densely covered with foliage. Specially named for the north west area of NAFAS (National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies) to celebrate their Golden Anniversary in 2011.

Awards for Best Roses at Trial Gardens

This weekend national and international rose growers and hybridisers will converge on the New Zealand International Rose Trial Grounds at the Esplanade Gardens to celebrate the best roses in the world

The awards will be presented on Sunday 4 December at 2.00pm by Palmerston North Deputy Mayor Jim Jefferies and John Ford, Chairman of the Trial Ground Committee.

There will be four different categories of awards, including the June Hocking Fragrance Award and the Nola Simpson Novelty Award. Any winning rose bred by a New Zealand amateur breeder is also eligible for the Silver Star of the City of Palmerston North, but the highlight of the weekend will be the presentation of The Gold Star of the South Pacific Award for the top rose.

Over the past two years 50 roses have been submitted by rose breeders from around the world. All have been cared for by Palmerston North City Council staff at the trial grounds.

“While many people visit and admire the rose gardens in the Esplanade every year, not everyone appreciates the national significance of the gardens as trial grounds,” Palmerston North Mayor Jono Naylor said.“PNCC is very proud of the dedication staff have shown at maintaining the trial grounds at international level.”

Most of the roses in the trial grounds have never been seen before in New Zealand and represent the latest trends in the rose industry.

“Rose breeders worldwide are breeding roses with more flowers and improved disease tolerance,” John Ford said. “More varieties have fragrant blooms than ever before.”

“The awards reflect the reputation of the City and the Victoria Esplanade Gardens as an internationally recognised rose growing area, particularly as the city gears up to host the World Federation of Rose Societies Regional Convention in 2013,”Mr Ford said.

The roses are all evaluated by a panel of 20 judges on characteristics including colour, fragrance, health, flower form and novelty over a two year period. The presentations will take place at the gazebo in the Dugald Mackenzie Rose Gardens.

Details of all our roses are available on our web site. Over 1000 varieties to choose from.
