An outstanding rose that is almost 100 years old, so has proven a success for many years, and demonstrates that not all of the best roses need be new breeding! Gorgeous fully double, lilac pink flowers are simply rammed with petals, producing huge 10cm (4in) highly fragrant blooms repeatedly all summer. A real winner. Ht 1.2m x 1m.
Supplied as a freshly potted, British grown, professional quality plant.
All of our freshly potted roses are field grown and dug up and potted when the weather conditions are right in October or November, just as the plants are entering their winter dormancy, which helps keep the roots hydrated and in good condition.
The roses can be kept in their pots throughout the winter provided they are kept well fed and watered, however ideally, they should planted out as soon as possible. Because plants are dormant throughout the winter, they do not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be alarmed if the compost falls away from the roots when you take them out of their pots.
They will already have been cut back so no further pruning will be required, apart from removing any tips that have died back.
