WHAT IS A BARE ROOT ROSE? Bare root roses are rose plants delivered without foliage and soil and are traditionally planted in dormancy in the winter months (October-April). Not only are bare root roses cost-effective, particularly when planted in mass, they are also easy to handle and delivered in plastic-free packaging. Planting bare roots in the winter allows their roots to establish and produce bountiful blooms by the next flowering season.

Description

A beautiful rambler smothered with huge bunches of small, single blooms. These are blush white, delicately tinted with pale pink at the edges, later becoming almost pure white, creating the impression of apple blossom. They have a strong, pleasing musky fragrance, which carries over a wide area. It produces masses of small, oval, orange-red hips in the autumn. The growth is strong and bushy with elegant, pointed, glossy dark green foliage. Lester Rose Gardens, 1946.
