THE CHILDREN’S ROSE – Hybrid Tea Rose of the most delicate China pink and the most robust growth - as a standard specimen, it will grow very tall but is maintainable if you continue to cut long stems of blooms for a vase!
Raised by Meilland, France this highly fragrant rose has every single quality that one might expect from a rose which carries this lovely name!
The Children’s Rose produces highly fragrant blooms of soft powder pink which slowly unfurl to reveal a mass of swirling petals in fully double blooms. The flowering stems are mostly single, sometimes in clusters and are very long lasting in the vase. There are very few thorns on the flower stems which means that the children themselves can pick the flowers!
The rose is so robust and the disease resistant foliage makes it very dense. Once it starts to bloom in mid-Spring, the flowering is constant throughout the season and right up to Winter pruning. When grown on a STANDARD stem, the rose must be well staked using steel rods!
We highly recommend The Children’s Rose – a superb rose that combines beauty and form with the loveliest of true rose perfumes.
