Rose Of The Week

ROSE OF THE YEAR 2014 Lady Marmalade Floribunda 3ft An exciting new floribunda which has been awarded Rose Of The Year 2014  a title which it truly deserves. The compact bush carries masses of bright tangerine blooms which appear all summer long and well into the autumn and the first frosts.

The rounded buds open into a cupped bloom with heavily reflexed petals which open to wide bright flowers with a contrasting yellow centre. The blooms arrive in large clusters which can carry up to 10 or 11 blooms in a cluster, and will keep on appearing if you dead head regularly. The breeder has given it a 5 star rating which means it will grow and perform well under most conditions. A highly recommended modern rose with lots of old world charm, plus the bonus of an excellent spicy perfume. Bred by Harkness

"Lady Marmalade" is a song released in 1974 which was a world wide hit.  The song was also featured in the film "Moulin Rouge"

Rose Of The Week

EYES FOR YOU

Floribunda 2008  2ft 6ins

A lovely but very unusual rose.

A floribunda with large blooms which can be as big as 4ins across.  The colour is described as mauvy-lilac but the main eye catcher is the large purple blotch in the centre.

The huge blooms repeat all summer and really stand out in the crowd.

The foliage is very healthy with good disease resistance.

Not very tall so will grow in a container or the garden.

A bed of these eye catchers will stop the traffic.

Lovely perfume.

Rose Of The Week

ENGLAND'S ROSE

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.

Rose Of The Week

PENNY LANE Climbing Rose 1998  14-15ft

Rose Of The Year 1998 This is the first climber to be voted Rose Of The Year in the UK. It is a significant addition to the range of repeat blooming climbers, because of the old fashioned nature of the flowers. They are filled with ruffled, informal petals which become larger and more beautiful as they expand. The colour is pearly blush with light apricot in the depths of the fragrant flower. 'Penny Lane' blooms continuously through summer and autumn on long slender shoots, usually singly, and sometimes in small clusters. The plant has flexible stems and grows vigorously to average height or more, making it ideal for pillars, pergolas, arches, wall and fences. The plentiful foliage is healthy, dark green and shiny with excellent disease resistance. Fragrant. Highly Recommended.

Rose Of The Week

 

THE ENGLISH LADY

Floribunda  2009  3ft

 

Now it has been included in the Gold Standard range this beautiful rose should gain in popularity and get the recognition it deserves.

 Stunning blooms of changing pastel shades as the bloom matures.  In the early stages the bloom is a lovely peachy shade which develops into an apricot blush, and eventually pales to a soft cream shade.

As the petals open they reveal superb stamens of gold, maroon or chocolate.  It really is an impressive display of colour.

A good repeat flowering habit throughout the summer, and excellent health and disease resistance.

Scented.

Highly recommended

 

Named after Susan Daniel the opera singer, and the rose helps raise funds for the 'Help For Heroes' charity.'
