We are excited to bring to you 'The England Rugby Rose'! This stunning new red rose variety has been bred exclusively by Harkness Roses for the RFU to mark the 150th anniversary of English Rugby.
This beautiful Hybrid Tea variety boasts a fresh fragrance and large blooms in a striking deep red. With long straight stems, this rose is wonderful for cutting, to bring natural colour and scent into the home.
'The England Rose' forms a compact shrub with plenty of dark green and disease-resistant foliage, with a strong bushy habit to hold flowers up high in a lively manner.
Fantastically versatile, this rose is an ideal variety for planting in beds, borders, and large patio containers.
Money raised through the sales of this rose will help fund the RFU Injured Players Foundation which provides support to rugby players who sustain catastrophic spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury while playing the game. The rose is an official registered trademark of the Rugby Football Union.
Supplied freshly in a 3L pot, ready to be planted out. Please note at certain times of the year this variety may be supplied in a 4L pot.
We always endeavour to provide beautifully formed plants; however, our roses will naturally start to lose their leaves from October to prepare for the colder months. Do not worry though, as they will flourish once again with leaves and buds in the spring.
Please, make sure you consider the season when purchasing our remarkable roses for yourself or loved ones.
