Enviously beautiful raspberry-red blooms grow in abundance on the remarkable 'Little Sid' rose.
The flowerheads of this patio rose burst to life from spring with light red petals, which deepen to ruby at the centre. As a repeat flowering rose, an array of blooms continuously erupt through to the first frosts of the year, providing months of interest.
Clusters of flowers sit proudly on top of dark, glossy foliage, creating a striking colour contrast. The plant is a reliable grower, with a short and bushy habit – perfect for planting throughout the garden, including in patio pots, beds, and borders.
What’s more, this variety is loved by pollinators and will attract bees and butterflies to transform any garden into a haven of wildlife.
For every rose sold, we are proud to donate £5 to support the outstanding work of Ambitious about Autism (registered charity no. 1063184.) This is a national charity that runs specialist schools and colleges for autistic children and young people in London and the South East of England.
‘Little Sid’ is named after Sid Wallace, a young boy who is autistic and non-speaking, and the son of television presenter Gregg Wallace.
On the launch of this rose, Gregg said: “Raising an autistic child has many challenges but also great joys, as other families with lived experience will know. Anna and I are very proud of our wonderful son Sid and this rose is a celebration of him and all autistic young people.'
Supplied as a bare root rose, ready for planting.
