Amber #DAA520, apricot
Apricot #EE7600, cream
open cup bloom
fruity fragrance notes like berries, melons and apple
moderately fragrant rose
grows up to knee height +- 0.8m
suitable as picking blooms for the vase. Tall stems with firm petals.
These roses have a dense, shrubby growth habit.
Similar to Floribundas, however their blooms are of an old fashioned, ‘cabbage’ shape.
Most should be planted 0.8 x 0.8m apart.
The pointed buds of ‘Sylvie-Joy’ swell and slowly open to fully petalled blooms measuring 10cms across.
The colour is an amber apricot which is enhanced with a sheen of pink when the blooms mature in the sun. The firm petals, exuding a fruity scent, ensure that the blooms last well on the bush and as short stemmed roses for the vase. The plant is very compact at about knee height. ‘Sylvie-Rose’ is densely branched and clothed with disease resistant foliage.
This magnificent rose is named after Sylvia Joy Sutherland, a lady who lived life with grace, joy and laughter. Her journey with Motor Neurone Disease has taken her body but never her spirit. Her courage and bravery have been exceptional. Her beauty and laughter ever present. This rose is a tribute to this beautiful ‘nature whisperer’, the gracious joy giver who touched many, many hearts.

She is a legend in her own time and always my angel standing by. My mom, the garden angel, may her “Sylvie-joy” rose
blooms forever grace and add joy to gardens everywhere.
