With a dreamy fragrance and old fashioned appeal, this rose is a stunner. Described by a professional perfumer as such: "A sparkling note of fresh lemon characterises the top note, which swaps over into a creamy-soapy rose character. This you find combined with the smell of green apple and freshly cut grass. The core note presents spicy aspects, which increase during flowering. With age woody aspects of Cedar with deep bass notes of patchouli and lovage."

The flowers are around 9cm across with up to 65 raspberry pink petals on each, opening mainly singly occasionally in small clusters. They repeat throughout the season on this healthy, Floribunda Bush Rose.

This Floribunda Rose is from the Kordes Parfuma collection and rates 5/5 on our perfume scale.

Would any other Rose smell as sweet? Tesselaar has selected this Rose variety especially for its fragrance, you can rest assured it is also vigorous, hardy and disease resistant.

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.
