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.

OH WOW

CLIMBING ROSE

8FT-10FT

OH WOW is exactly the reaction you will have when you see this beautiful climber.

Purple and white striped blooms cover this stunner all summer long. The large exotic flowers appear in flushes from spring to autumn and are a real head turner. A very healthy rose with glossy medium green foliage which has excellent disease resistance and will tolerate a little shade. The perfume is not very strong but quite pleasant. Makes quite an unusual show as a cut flower.

ROSE OF THE WEEK

GRUSS AN AACHEN

Shrub Roses (Old Fashioned and Modern)

 Year: 1909

Height:  2ft

A superb rose which produces large clusters of blooms of pale orange- red plus yellow in the bud stage. As the blooms open they change to a beautiful blend of pearly pink blush and cream with an attractive silky sheen on the petals. The strength of colour is often determined by the weather and the difference in colours can be quite pronounced. The shape of the blooms can be very similar to an English David Austin rose and are often mistaken for one of that variety. A good repeat flowering habit, and in our opinion and is probably one of the most beautiful roses we have ever sold. The blooms are very weather tolerant, and the rich dark green foliage is healthy and disease free. An excellent bedding rose with the bonus of a great perfume which makes it a great rose for cutting. The perfume is a cross between the classical Tea Rose and honey. Not a very large variety so will grow in a container quite successfully. For the best results dead head regularly and only prune lightly in the spring. The roses ancestry is very complex, so rosarian’s around the world never seem too agree on how to classify it, is it a Floribunda a Hybrid Tea a Polyantha or a Bourbon shrub? One fact that is certain is that it was bred from the famous white Hybrid Perpetual ‘Frau Karl Druschki’ which was considered to be the finest white rose of its time. Frau Karl Druschki was the wife of the President of the German Rose Society. It is also believed that ‘Gruss An Aachen’ was the original rose that began the Floribunda variety. A truly remarkable rose that was bred by Philip Geduldig. The name ‘Gruss An Aachen’ means "Greetings to Aachen" in Germany which was the breeders home city. Almost thornless. Highly recommended. Also known as 'White Willow Glen'

THE VICAR’S DAUGHTERS COLLECTION

Three beautiful roses bred by the Rev Joseph Pemberton

And named after his daughter’s.

 FELICIA

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.

National Rose Society Certificate of Merit 1927 Royal Horticultural Society Award Of Garden Merit  1993 Bred by th Rev Joseph Pemberton and named after one of his daughters.

CORNELIA

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.

 Royal Horticultural Society Award Of Garden Merit 1993

Bred by the Rev Joseph Pemberton and named after one of his daughters.

 PENELOPE

This is a large, arching shrub with vigorous and disease free growth. It flowers continuously through summer and into autumn and produces a lovely show of hips in winter. The trusses of double, medium sized blooms are of a delicate light pink and apricot shades fading to white with age. 'Penelope' makes a fine specimen rose in the garden or an effective informal hedge, and is useful for growing over walls or fences and will cope with partial shade. The blooms are sweetly scented.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012

OLYMPIC SPIRIT

Floribunda. 1988. 2ft-3ft

An attractive rose with clusters of orange blend blooms which are quite a striking colour. Flowers in flushes throughout the summer and into autumn and the first frosts. Produces plenty of blooms so the spent blooms should be removed regularly to promote repeat flowering and to keep the plant tidy.    Nice healthy foliage and good disease resistance. The stems are not very long being a floribunda, but it does make an attractive cut flower. Fruity fragrance.

 Not very well known at the moment, but that should all change soon with the next Olympic Games coming to London in 2012.
