Hybrid Tea Roses
The very fragrant blooms are elegant, small to medium sized & decorate the upright growing plant with their soft blend of apricot-peach colouring.
It competes in performance with the best of floribundas. Grown in large groups, amongst other
roses, in hedge-like rows, tubs or on standard stems, it will always make an attractive statement.
The rose ‘Anne Colle’ was named in celebration of Anne Colle’s 20 years being in South Africa, her 20th wedding anniversary and a successful Fabric design and manufacturing business. Roses play an important part of her designs.
The new rose ‘Anne Colle’ too is very artistic in the playful arranging of the various colour shades from pink at the base flowing over a soft hue and getting intermingled with the cream in the centre as the high and pointed bloom opens up. Each bud is carried on a long strong stem, each bud is ideal for cutting and home decoration with the added bonus of a strong perfume escaping from the unfolding flowers.
This tall growing rose is one of the first to flower in spring and continuously sprouts new flowering stems. It is an easy rose to grow and fun to have in a garden.
In celebration of Anne’s 75th birthday, Roedean School & The Johannesburg Garden Club commissioned this namesake rose.
Pointed buds develop into beautiful exhibition shaped, large blooms of perfect symmetry.
The blend of champagne colour takes on a pink hue as the opening petals are exposed to the sun.
Easy to grow & will hold its own in any mixed rose bed.
She is seen as an Icon in the South African music industry, and respected as a vocalist everywhere she goes.
Her rose is an extremely free flowering hybrid tea that loves the sun to bring out its exquisite colour blend of deep cream to coral.
The small, tightly pointed buds uncurl their tips to form an attractive star shaped bloom with very firm petals, enabling it to last almost forever on the plant or in a vase.
The basic white is enhanced by an ivory cream with a silky sheen.
Vigorously upright, producing wiry, almost thornless stems in profusion.
Excellent grower in beds with other HT’s or in pots.
One of the foremost florist roses: perfect for bridal bouquet, buttonhole arrangements, garlands, bride’s table or as reception or table arrangements.
Irresistable! The unususal blend of green flowing over the soft apricot-cream is stunning.
Buds are high centred and unfold slowly with the distinctive green of the petal margins flowing towards the centre. Outer petal edges are playfully frilly. Kept on the bush, blooms turn completely green.
Long upright stems with only few prickles. Spray regularly.
Named when the Auckland Park Preparatory School celebrated its 75th anniversary in 1975.

‘Arlene’ is a full-petalled yellow Hybrid Tea that flowers prolifically and grows to head height as a neat, upright, dense bush.
The medium sized blooms have a pointed urn shape, and the bush produces one bud at the end of each long stem, so one doesn’t have the bother of disbudding. Cutting just a few blooms every few days will not diminish the show of flowers that ‘Arlene’ is capable of providing.
The deep green, healthy foliage is an added attraction.
A story lies behind the name.Over the years I have been asked by a member of the Western Cape Rose Society to name a rose ‘Arlene’. Because I like the name and also admired the yellow ‘Arlene Francis’ (released in 1957) I agreed. When I noted the continuous outstanding performance of our yellow ‘LUDtwosuns’, I decided that this is it.Plant Height: Above Head HeightColours: Yellow Uses: Bedding
