Rose ‘Lioness’ is as strong and sublime as the name implies. A modern shrub rose with great vigour. The large, honey yellow to soft apricot flowers cluster together and repeat throughout the season. Each has 26-40 petals. A wonderfully tall rose, growing up to 3m, it makes an excellent screening bush or feature plant/tree and doesn’t need a support to grow on. It has excellent health and copes well in both hot, dry conditions as well as more tropical climes.
Rose ‘Lioness’ rates 3/5 on our fragrance scale.
We have carefully chosen this Rose collection to best suit Australian conditions, across a wide climatic range. We have selected only disease resistant Rose that are also visually stunning. Prime, two year old stock.
Rose bushes are upright, elegant shrubs that are adorned twice a year with spectacular, showy blooms.
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.
When providing your roses with a supporting show and companion planting try and leave a bit of space around their root zone clear.
