Product Information

Named after Desmond Tutu's wife, Rose 'Leah Tutu' is a floribunda shrub rose with stunning golden-yellow, large multi-layered, multi-petalled blooms that will add something special to your garden.

Contrasting against its rich green foliage, the huge flowers look almost similar to a Dahlia, combining the free-flowering shrubby nature of a rose with the beauty of a Dahlia bloom.

Repeat flowering, Leah Tutu will grace your garden with its splendid presence all summer long, flowering from June throught to the September. It also has a beautiful scent that you can enjoy throughout those warm summer months.

Easy to look after and maintain, Leah Tutu is ideal both for pots and containers or planted direct in the border. It will stay compact in height, growing to no more than 1m tall, so you don't need to worry about it taking over your garden.

Top Tips

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.

Care Information

  • To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly. Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and donít worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.
  • When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.
  • Roses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought-dry. Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.
  • Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, so add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole if necessary and plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is around 3cm below soil level.
  • Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry. Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
  • For best results, feed roses in late-March/April and again in late July.
