One of the most reliable and hardy roses in our collection - an ideal rose for the inexperienced gardener. It is highly resistant to disease and will bloom with unusual continuity throughout the season. The young buds are a rich orange-red that open to form chalice-shaped blooms, filled with loosely arranged petals. Each petal has a salmon pink upper side, which contrasts beautifully with the attractive golden yellow reverse. The flowers have a pleasant, warm Tea fragrance, with hints of spiced apple and cloves. It quickly forms a large, bushy shrub with slightly arching stems. The mid-green leaves have attractive, slightly bronzed tones when young.
‘Lady of Shalott’ quickly forms a large, bushy shrub with slightly arching stems. The flowers create a spectacular show of colour and are beautifully displayed against the mid-green leaves, which have attractive, slightly bronzed tones when young. Position this rose toward the middle or back of the border. It would also make a great choice for landscaping large areas.
Named for the Tennyson Society. The name is taken from one of Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poems to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his birth. The poem tells the story of The Lady of Shalott, who lived in a castle close to King Arthur’s Camelot and was held in a spell.
