Named for the RHS Gardens at Wisley this is a recent introduction which should not be confused with another rose named ‘Wisley’ that does not display such a strong resistance to disease. This is an outstanding rose with shallowly cupped flowers that form beautifully shaped rosettes up to 7.5cm (3") across. These soft pink flowers have a fruity fragrance and will continue to appear for a long period throughout summer along the softly arching stems. Busy and upright this is an ideal choice for either formal or informal areas of the garden.

  • 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.
