The blooms are big and fully double with an old world charm. The blooms open as bunches, rarely singles. The colouring of this delightful Rose is a mixture of peach, apricot and pink.
‘Afternoon Delight’ has good disease resistance and is low maintenance. This Floribunda bush rose is part of the Fairytale Rose Collection from Kordes and grows to around a metre. Fairytale Roses are English style roses bred to enchant, they are robust and flower tirelessly, they are a result of a breeding program that doesn’t use pesticide and fungicide so only the strongest survive and become available to gardeners.
The sweet fragrance registers 3/5 on our Rose fragrance scale.
Would any other Rose smell as sweet? We have carefully selected this Rose variety especially for its fragrance but we make sure 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.
