Masses of fragrant, single, yellow-centred, white flowers from July to September, followed by large, red or orange-red rose-hips. This vigorous, white species rose makes a great, informal, flowering hedge for an open, sunny site. An excellent choice for the wildlife garden, the leathery, dark-green leaves turn butter-gold in autumn.To find out more about how to plant a hedge, click here
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.
