Here we have a very special rose, one that performs with panache and style.
The blooms are a magnificent canary yellow in bud, where the shape is rounded with a pointed centre, ideal to cut or the home. As the bloom opens it slowly reveals more and more petals, retaining a strong colour. Only as the flower is reaching its last days will it fade to cream. The perfume is one to enjoy, it isn't overpowering or overly sweet, more a combination of myrrh and a refreshing soap.
Forming a bushy plant with plenty of well sized bloom Summer and Autumn, this a an exceptional yellow variety. One which we hope will become popular and give pleasure to many gardeners
The foliage is glossy and mid green. It looks so well polished and glossy that the leaf on its own is a joy to behold.
*** Update 6 July: There will be further releases during July as plants become ready. The date they will be available for sale will be published here on Monday 13 July
This will consist of two versions of Alfie Boe OBE. There will be larger plants (in 7.5 litre pots), which are one year older and some of the normal size plants in 4.5 litre pots.
