Selected to promote the World Rose Convention to take place in South Africa in 2012.
The vigorous shrubby bush spreads out widely at hip height and keeps on covering itself with large, full blooms of the olden open cup shape. The colour is a pleasing blend of peach apricot with a faint hue of pink flowing over the fully opened flowers.
Firm, incurved petals ensure an extended freshness period allowing a moderate whiff of scent to escape. This hardy rose makes a statement when standing on its own, is ideal for dense hedge-like plantings, or in groups. Fascinates as a giant umbrella when grafted on a standard stem.
Translated from French, ‘Rose Celeste’ mean “Heavely Rose”. It boasts blooms with a shape and size only expected from a good Hybrid Tea rose. However, whereas the climbing form of hybrid tea roses flower only once in spring, this rose produces pink blooms on the tip of every shoot throughout the season.
Vigorous and absolutely hardy, ‘Rose Celeste’ grows quickly to cover a wall, fence or pergola. It may also be planted unsupported where it will shape itself into a naturally upright pillar. The more frequently blooms are picked, the more encouragement the shrub recieves to keep on providing blooms.
Rosemary Ladlau is South Africa’s eminent flower arranger. She served as chairperson for the World Flower Association as well as being an honorary member of the South African Flower Union.Roses are part of Rosemary Ladlau’s artistic flower creations, but not just any roses but rather the garden roses with the more unusual shapes and colours.
The rose variety named in her honour is just that. A link between the Hybrid Tea and the French heritage roses with pointed, urn shaped buds opening slowly into full bodied blooms with the famous quartered centre of the old roses.
The colour is a very deep mauve-violet that is novel and not often found amongst the modern roses.
The fragrance that rises out of the open blooms is sweet and powerful.
The bush is vigorous, well branched with medium long stems and clothed in glossy, deep green, deeply veined, healthy leaves. It is a vigorous rose that will perform amongst other Hybrid Tea and Floribunda roses, it is a pleasure to have this fragrant rose growing in a container near an open air sitting area and with its more compact spreading growth habit. It is excellent as a border plant, for tall growing cut roses or for shrubberies etc.
Classical, large creamy gold blooms for the Olympic Gold medallist swimmer on a proud, tall growing bush clothed with lush laurel like foliage.
With its powerful vigour & staying power, expect it to flourish in any sunny spot with minimum care. It produces long stemmed, pickable flowers without end.
This rose is not shy, she opens up, from being a perfect, femininely rounded HT bud of a strong champagne orange blushing the loveliest pink where the sun has already kissed her petals, to expose long elegant stamen – attracting such as the bee to tickle her.
She exudes a naughty, fruity fragrance and yet is absolute rose. Her large outer petals on opening, fold to the reverse, revealing narrow, lancet shaped petals which scroll together towards the heart of the bloom, reminiscent of a quartered rosette, giving this rose its peculiar beauty.
She will happily reach shoulder height and reward you with pickable stems, with a softer neck, so that she can smile at you, whilst in the vase.
The rose was named in appreciation for all the exposure the rose is given in the magazine & Lizette Jonker’s work.
