October's plant of the month

Glyndebourne Rose

Rosa ‘Glyndebourne’ is a modern shrub rose with flowers that resemble a traditional old-English variety. It is a vigorous, healthy plant that produces masses of roses from late June to November. The flowers are sumptuous, full-petalled and with a soft, delicate fragrance. The centre of the flower is a light peach colour that fades to almond blossom on the outer petals. Philip Harkness has recorded an average of 75 petals in each flower. The plant will grow to 1.4 m tall and 1.0 m wide. They are ideal for use in mixed borders or planted as a group for maximum impact in the garden. Click here to read the story of how the Glyndebourne Rose was selected.
