This rose is called 'My Mum' and it is a rose for a special moment. It is in only its fourth year in my garden and flourishes. Here is the description:
'Bushy and healthy floribunda. My Mum carries gorgeous scarlet blooms with a delicate silver reverse set against lush mid-green foliage.
Height 75 cms (30 inches)
Position: Will thrive in most types of well-drained soil but needs an open, sunny situation.
Planting: Water thoroughly or stand container in water for an hour before planting. Plant in hole large enough to avoid disturbing root ball. Back-fill with soil previously mixed with peat, or a suitable alternative and a recommended fertilizer.
Plant Care: Roses benefit from the addition of organic material to the soil Feed in Spring after pruning and again in July. Water well when dry.'
I think it lives up to its promise, don't you?
