THE WORLD'S BEST ROSES

EASY DOES IT

Floribunda 2008 3ft-4ft Although this superb rose was bred in the UK it has really taken the USA by storm.

Each year they choose a few roses for their All American Rose Award but in 2010 there was only one winner, so it looks something special.

Quite big for a  floribunda it produces masses of huge intensely ruffled blooms of mango orange suffusing to pink.

The colour is very difficult to describe but peach, mango, pink and orange are all there to make quite a confectionary of colours.

It is even difficult to catch the colour on film but the picture featured is probably the best we can find for the moment.

As you would expect from a rose with such a top award it flowers all season, it is very healthy, plus the bonus of a lovely perfume.

It looks a sure fire winner in the UK

Gold Standard Rose Trials

The Gold Standard Trials are the result of a joint initiative between professional rose breeders represented by BARB (British Association of Rose Breeders) and NIAB (National Institute of Agricultural Botany). Unlike some rose trials, breeders pay a fee for each rose variety submitted to the Gold Standard trials, independently managed by NIAB at their Cambridge headquarters.

Based on cumulative information from invited independent judges throughout the two year period of the trial, the Gold Standard is awarded to worthy varieties. Health, floriferousness, scent and commercial appeal are all considered key factors. The first trial was planted in 2004 (and judged during 2005 and 2006) with the results confirmed in autumn 2006. The second trial was concluded in autumn 2007 with a further seven roses joining the original ‘magnificent seven’ to give a total of fourteen varieties awarded ‘Gold Standard’ status. The trial that concluded in autumn 2009 produced a further thirteen Gold Standard roses. The completion in 2010 of the latest trial also adds a further thirteen roses to the ‘Gold Standard Hall of Fame’ making a total to date of 51Gold Standard roses. With the trials set to continue no doubt more roses will receive this accolade in the future.

Other rose trials conducted to establish the performance of new, and in some cases established, rose varieties include the International Merit Trials at the Royal National Rose Society in St Albans, the Glasgow International Trials at Tollcross Park, the Pencoed Trials in Wales, the City of Belfast International Rose Trials and, now in its 28th year, the Rose of the Year trials.

The Gold Standard roses can be viewed at Roath Park, Cardiff and at Borde Hill Garden, Haywards Heath, West Sussex.

Floribunda Rose

2006  3ft-4ft

This rose has very unusual colouring. It has been described as russet, smokey lavender/orange or red. Whatever the colour it is quite an interesting rose from the USA. Over there it was named 'Cinco de Mayo' and was voted the All American Selection in 2009. It produces masses of colourful blooms in large clusters throughout the season and well into the autumn. The blooms are pretty weather proof and unaffected by rain. Even the foliage is colourful as it starts of red and changes to semi glossy dark green as it matures. The foliage is pretty healthy and also disease resistant. An interesting rose for cutting with a pleasant perfume.
