Taking its name from the colours of the Spanish pennant, Rosa ‘Spanish Flag’ is a dual flowered climbing rose with two coloured blooms on each plant - both red and yellow. A combination of the red rose ‘Flammentanz’ and the soft yellow 'Golden Showers', together they make an eye-catching combination in your summer garden. Both varieties are vigorous and the rose will bloom reliably to give you a show which none of your neighbours will have.
‘Flammentanz’ is a vigorous climber and considered one of the finest bright red roses with a light fragrance.
'Golden Showers' is a classic yellow climber - vigorous and reliable and flowers all summer and into autumn.
Supplied as a single grafted bare root plant with both colours, red and yellow.
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 don’t 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.
