What shrub would give 6 months of continuous colour? Well a Precious rose will, quickly repeat flowering from May each year halted only by the hardest of winter frosts. After a simple prune in March – reduce stems by a two-thirds and cut out any weak and crossing stems, they’ll spring into flower in May to repeat the performance again.
Precious Roses have a floribunda flower form and a neat rounded shape with glossy leaves that are brimming with health. Happy in a pot but most at home in bold colourful blocks. Planted 70cm apart they quickly create a colourful splash.
They seamlessly work into mixed borders, quickly filling gaps and make a great house warming gift for friends faced with their first garden as they’re happy in pots too. Traditionalist will love them as they’re great for massed planting too.
