Voted 'Rose of the Year 2010' by the National Rose Society

An impressive new variety that produces clusters of butter-yellow blooms that have a heady liquorice-like fragrance above the dark green foliage. This beautiful floribunda rose will continue producing its flowers throughout summer so is perfect for long-lasting displays. It also looks fab in a decorative pot on a sunny patio where its cheerful flowers and intoxicating scent can be best appreciated.

  • Garden care: Plant during a frost-free spell incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.
