Deliciously, double, fragrant, deep crimson-maroon flowers with closely packed petals in summer and dark green leaves. This gorgeous Gallica rose is probably a sport of 'Tuscany', which it is very similar too but less bushy and a little taller. A superb rose for a shrub border where it will look lovely planted alongside deep purple flowering plants and foliage.Please note : All our roses have had a summer prune to tidy them up so they will not be in flower when you receive them.Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.All our roses are field grown. In October/November they are dug up and potted. However, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when winter planting. Some suppliers send out 'bare root' plants unpotted, but we don't as it is easier to manage them on the nursery in pots.
