DETAILED DESCRIPTION

A variety of rather unusual colouring for an English Rose, but very pleasing and useful for creating a little excitement in the border. Before the flowers even begin to open, the outside of the buds are a most wonderful dark red with dashes of orange. When fully open, the flowers have an attractive, incurving chalice shape. Their colouring was new to the English Roses: a lovely mixture of rich, almost tangerine orange on the inside of the petals and a more yellow orange on the outside; the whole set off against the very dark, bronzy green, polished leaves that slowly become dark green with age. The flowers have a strong, delicious, fruity fragrance with hints of pear, grape and citrus fruits. Their colour varies a little according to the season, gradually changing as more of the inner petals are exposed to create a wonderful contrast. It flowers freely and remains healthy.

GROWTH HABIT

The growth is fairly upright but quite broad and bushy. This rose looks wonderful in mass plantings and combines well with other plants and shrubs in the mixed border. Position towards the middle of the border or grow in a large container near to resting areas or where its wonderful scent can be appreciated.

ORIGINS

Named after the beautiful mistress of Lord Nelson to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.

AWARDS

Winner of the first prize for fragrance in the Prix International at the Nantes trials in France.
