HT Rose Black Baccara


By Mookins

Norfolk, United Kingdom Gb

am pining after one of these beautiful roses, but cannot find any decent info on them. My main concern is them fading in direct sunlight as the area Im hoping to put it in is south facing and has sun (when its sunny) all day

On plant HT Rose Black Baccara



HI, Mookins I did a quick search for you on the net and Apuldrum roses sell it but don't rate them whereas other rate them for disease resistance etc. I always think Apuldrum give pretty honest appraisals. Most say the flowers spoil in the rain and from pics on one site it appears they go a lighter red in sun

Hi, Mookins. Just phoned a good friend who knows a lot about roses. Says they can, indeed get a little paler in bright sunshine but don't let it worry you. Rain is a bigger problem. Blooms don't like it very much - rather like my Terracotta!

oh bless ya Ponty
that was sweet of you , you folks go to so much trouble its very good of you.

The trouble is though Norfolk does tend to be quite soggy as you know when it rains it certainly rains heavy....

In our experience they are a good colour, but go more burgundy in sunshine. They are actually designed to be grown under artificial flourescent lighting for the cut flower industry to maintain the best colour.
