HENRI MATISSE – Floribunda/Modern shrub rose which is now widely produced as a cut flower for florists.
This rose is particularly favoured because it does so well as a cut flower specimen.
The dark cerise/red petals are slashed with bars of white and no two blooms are identical so the bush in a garden border, growing to around 1metre in height, is a constant reminder of how interesting roses continue to be!
Henri Matisse is included in the Delbard “Painters Collection” since there is a random but distinct link between the Impressionist Masterpieces and the style and colours of the roses in this series – each bloom neither the same, nor entirely different!
For a massive ‘take a look at me’ garden in the front of your home, plant a garden bed of Henri Matisse – use the standard form for greater height and watch your neighbours gasp with delight.
