Named as a present for the 50th wedding anniversary of Anastasia & Gibson THULA. ‘A marriage made in heaven’.
The incredible strong fragrance exuding from large, very shapely deep pink blooms is the outstanding feature of this new variety.
The bush easily grows into a well branched, head high, specimen producing masses of cut flower quality stems.
Strong, spicy, most unusual fragrance; large egg shaped buds expand into large, firm petalled blooms; buds carried on strong stems; good cut flowers; towering growth – stiffly upright. Canes spread at 2m. Can be left to form a huge free standing specimen. Thick, dark green, deeply veined leaves contrast with the reddish tint of stems & prickles.
The flowers exhibit an unusual honey-buff shade.
The outer petals incurve to form an almost enclosed cup which later opens to expose a deep flower filled with many small petals. These have a sweet, honey fragrance to match the colour.
The growth is sturdy, upright, free flowering and repetitive.
‘Vuvuzela’ produces lots of basals soon after planting out & becomes a dense, hip high bush to chest high by the end of the season.
It blooms constantly and loves sunshine which intensifies the bright red orange flowing over the basic yellow. Most blooms are carried one to a stem, which makes it a productive pickable rose, but there are also clusters.
This hardy variety grows upright & produces shapely, full petalled blooms of a soft peach colour which last for a long time. An excellent provider of cut roses. Vigorous & healthy. Winner of 7 International awards.
Large, fresh, clear white blooms which, in opening, form a shallow cup filled with petals; they pale later without becoming dull.
The strong Old Rose fragrance exudes charm.
The excellent habit of forming a robust, twiggy shrub which always branches to produce new flowers, is its real merit.
The bright lilac-lavender blooms are exceptionally well formed, being full, double & high centred with thick petals of good substance. They are long lasting on the bush & when cut. The bush is vigorous & free flowering.
Iced, silver blooms appear on sturdy, upright growing plants. Pointed, silver buds open to reveal an unusual lavender-grey colouring with a strong perfume. They are carried on strong stems & make interesting cut flowers.
Blooms of classic shape in the light yellow of the winter sun & its ability to flower deep into winter gave it its name.
Its resistance to black spot allows the neat, chest high bush to remain clothed with glossy green foliage – ensuring a penetrating root system, uninterrupted sap flow and little chance of sunburn or stem kanker.
‘Winter Sun’is very close to our ideal of a modern rose.
She produces large exhibition shaped buds & blooms. Mother-of- pearl enhanced with pink in colour.
Each strong stem produces one bloom which may be cut for decoration at the half open stage, when a distinct, sweet fragrance will fill the room.
The bush is vigorous & tall growing.
