Fairy Tale Roses

Fairy Tale

When Archbishop Desmond Tutu turned 75 in October 2006, this sparkling red rose was named after him. The rose was donated by Ludwig Taschner in recognition of the
Archbishop’s lifelong work for peace in SA.

This rose will help raise money for the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital in Cape Town of which the Archbishop & Mrs Tutu are patrons.

‘Avril Elizabeth Home’ is a compact shrub rose clothed with deep green glossy foliage & decorated with large blooms. The extremely thick petals give a fruity appearance & they hold on the bush for a long time. They are produced on good strong stems, excellent for making informal flower arrangements.

Fairy Tale

A powerful crimson red floribunda.

Clusters of medium sized 25 petalled blooms are borne on basals as well as sprouting from the mature wood. This means equally good responding after severe or light pruning. The latter resulting in the formation of a formidable dense, neat shrub between 1.5 or 2m in height & width.

It keeps on flowering with a minimum of care.

Fairy Tale

Blue Fairy

KORmapoki(N)

Large, double blooms appear in clusters on strong stems as  well as on many side stems, ensuring a true fairytale rose look.

As round buds develop, the outer petals reflex, revealing  the incurved petals in the centre – an interesting balance of  the old & the new ‘rose look’. The bush grows easily; with  light pruning it will be formidable.

Fairy Tale

Brothers Grimm

KORbrogri(N)

Like ‘Double Delight’, the basic ivory colour of these full,  nostalgia type blooms takes on a red tint in the sun. However, this variety is a shrub rose which spreads out neatly at hip  height, covering itself with glossy foliage & producing large double blooms on the end of every freely produced new shoot.  A fun rose to grow.

Fairy Tale

When I first delivered bare root rose bushes to Clarence  almost 50 years ago, it was a charming little village. Now it is  a favourite domicile for people who escape the summer’s heat  of the Highveld.

Roses flourish in this climate; this novelty is  bound to add to the attraction. Incredibly healthy, well foliated  bush grows to chest height, produces dense clusters of densely petalled blooms. A pleasing blend of cream pink.

Fairy Tale

Clever Gretel

KORcleveth(N)

The pointed buds open in the classical, modern rose shape.  Then, as more & more firm petals unfold, the outer petals  curve outwards & downwards until the inner petals form a  most interesting & unique, scalloped, quartered shape.

They  make good cut flowers. ‘Clever Gretel’ vigorously renews itself  with basal stems & sprouts flowering growth all over.

Clocolan

KORcloco(N)

Roses have thrived in the cool mountain air of Clocolan since  the first houses & gardens were established 100 years ago.  ‘Clocolan’ is part of the Centenary celebrations. Soon not hundreds, but thousands of plants will grace parks, gardens  & the countryside of this region. It is a very special rose which  is capable of growing without any special care.
