Patio Giant!

11 comments


This is my Patio Rose ‘Designer Sunset’ and some of her blooms. This rose is advertised all over the internet as growing to 50cm in 10 years. Well, mine is 4 years old, and is now a metre in all directions! Its so blooming big, I might have to remove it if it grows any bigger. As you can see from the diverse colours of the blooms, it is a very well-named rose – all except the ‘patio’ bit!

Certainly wants to be noticed, K! Beautiful rose..

Reminds me of the raspberry ripple chews when I was at school.

It's a nice one. I've noticed with some roses that fall into the ground cover bracket that they do anything but cover the ground :-)))))

So true Dawn! I was just think yesterday that a ‘ground cover rose’ is a marketing term for a rose that has such long lax stems that it flops all over everything around it!

It's a beautiful rose, I think I agree with your last comment about the ground cover types! Perhaps you are feeding yours too well and it's just getting 'fat'.
