Deep pink with a white reverse. A mutation of South Africa’s best selling rose ‘Iceberg’, sharing its excellent characteristics.
Exactly like ‘Iceberg’ in growth habit & flowering ability. Clusters of burgundy-red blooms with a silver reverse. It has become a favourite in South Africa & is the ideal choice for contrasting with ‘Iceberg’.
This extremely healthy, free-flowering polyantha rose was released in 1920, also known as ‘Chatillon Rose’, ‘Phalaenopsis’ & ‘Nearly Wild’.
Grows hip high producing dense, large sprays of 25 to 45 single blooms virtually forever.
Ideal border plant that responds well when trimmed with hedge clippers. Prominent stamens attract butterflies.
I am truly impressed by the perfomance of this rose.
The young plant develops into a large, well rounded, neat shrub, 1.5m high & just as wide, not forgetting to produce cluster after cluster of attractive candy-pink blooms softened by a white reverse; healthy & very vigorous bush.
She really is a carefree rose.
Each apricot cream bloom consists of several layers of firm petals which age into an interesting green. The medium long stems carry dense, large clusters of shapely buds.
Semi-double flowers with pointed petals give a ‘curly’ effect. Vigorous, spreading, healthy & prolific growth
Roses are no strangers to Pretoria – the first rose show was held here over 100 years ago. This rose was chosen to represent Pretoria.
Large clusters of shapely buds unfold slowly, displaying the firm, pointed petals of semi-double blooms. Warm deep orange-apricot with cream on the reverse. Well rounded specimens of even height.
A modernistic rose with a variation of colours in each bloom. A deep orange-pink forms the base to the irregular yellow patches, stripes & dots on both sides of the petals.
Each of the shapely, medium sized, high centred blooms is different. The bush is vigorous, rugged & never without blooms.
‘Claude Monet’ is one of the most interesting cut roses.
Truly fragrant floribundas are few & far between & this vigorous bush, covered with semi-double, bright pink blooms, is a very welcome addition to the range. A touch of coral renders it an ideal partner to the salmon-pink & even orange floribunda.
Firm petalled, high pointed buds are carried on individual, short stems; provides a superb garden display.
