The Plants

Rosa 'Gertrude Jekyll' - shrub rose

Perfect little scrolled buds expand into quite large rich pink rosettes of beautiful Old Rose character. The growth is tall and vigorous, making it perhaps more suitable for the middle or back of the border. The Old Rose fragrance is strong, superb and perfectly balanced, the quintessential rose fragrance. Can also be grown as a short climber.

Care instructions

Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Do not forget to water well as roses are very thirsty plants, especially during a very hot spell. All Bush or Shrub Roses should be pruned down in the spring to half their height, removing all dead wood.
