An excellent Floribunda rose with deep to mid pink flowers, comprising of up to 40 petals. It has an old fashioned feel with cutting edge breeding. The flowers will open throughout the season.
We rate Rose ‘Summer Romance’ 4.5/5 on the fragrance scale. The Kordes Perfumer describes it as: “Those who are friends with the typical liquorice-like note of anise, which is presented by some roses, will love this type. It combines intensely but not importunately this spicy note with the basic body of a classic rose scent. The connecting element is a smooth and soft flavour of fresh apple in the core note. The spicy aspect dominates mainly the fresh flower and makes room for the fruity character the more the flower opens. The fresh and tender rose impression underlines the fruity heart of the scent until the last moment.”
Rose ‘Summer Romance’ is noted for strong black spot resistance. It holds a prestigious ADR award from the German rose trials.

The basics of rose care are simply ...
1. Keep the plants moist at all times, but never allow the roots to sit in water.
2. Feed generously, and frequently, two or three times over the flowering season.
3. Keep pests to a minimum (this is usually not a problem if you start with a strong variety, and keep it well watered and well fed).
4. Prune back once a year .
5. Keep the area around the roots weed free, and ensure 4-6 hours of sun per day. Loamy soils are ideal, though Roses will grow in heavy top soils (if well drained) and sandy soils (if kept watered and fed more frequently). For Roses to thrive, good drainage is critical.
