Casanova – Floribunda/Modern Shrub Rose which inspired me so much that I planted a bed of 24 plants.
Raised by Fryers, UK, this very versatile rose will stand out wherever it is planted because of the bright warm orange blooms which hold well in all weather conditions and fade at the very last to a pale orange/pink.
Casanova has the most striking crimson new foliage which turns dark green and is so very disease-resistant. When the plant is so clothed with lovely foliage, the orange blooms stand out and put on a grand display. The rounded bush of 1 metre x 1 metre is never without flowers from very early in the Spring right through to Winter pruning.
There is a subtle fragrance of spice when it is warm and still and this rose is a brilliant one to pick in great branches for the vase – it holds up very well.
