Maggie – Modern Shrub rose named for our very own Maggie Tabberer who is the patron of the Melanoma Foundation who receive the royalty payments from sales of this rose in Australia.
This magnificent rose has all the style and flair, the resilience and beauty we love about Maggie Tabberer!
Maggie is delightfully feminine – the superb flowers are softly ruffled with masses of petals in rich, creamy white. During the cooler months, there is a distinct border of blush pink at the edge of the petals and there is a distinct soft, fruity fragrance which adds a romantic charm to this most beautiful rose.
This rose is tough with abundant, glossy and healthy foliage and would be suitable to plant as a border or rose hedge – each shrub will grow to 1.5mts high and at least 1mt wide and can be pruned mechanically.
Maggie flowers are wonderful for flower arrangements because the cluster of flowers will slowly open in the vase so that the ruffled petals can be enjoyed and this rose is a favourite of mine - frequently in a vase on my kitchen bench - so, so pretty!
