A recent introduction, 'Flaming Star' is a spectacular rose of almost epic proportions! Orange buds unfurl to reveal magenta-blushed petals which darken with age becoming darker as they mature.
A hybrid tea rose which produces single stems of colourful blooms, they're ideal for cutting and grow into a straight, compact plant making them perfect for narrow borders or rose beds.
Happiest in full sun, this versatile rose will also thrive in light shade, filling the garden with its light perfume.
Its dark, glossy leaves are particularly resistant to the normal rose problems and make this one of the easier roses to grow so perfect for novice or time strapped gardeners.
Supplied as a single bare-root bush, ready for immediate planting, reaches 1m when mature.
Aftercare Information for your 'Flaming Star' rose:
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 in late-March/April and again late July.
Planting Advice for 'Flaming Star':
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.
Add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole and plant so that the graft union (the swollen are when the stems meet the roots) is just below soil level. Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.
Pruning Advice for Rosa 'Flaming Star' (R):
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.
