Rosemary Ladlau

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.
