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 en masse, 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.

Origin of Name

This variety was named with the approval of Roald Dahl's wife, Felicity Dahl, to highlight Roald's love of gardening. The colour of the rose immediately brought to mind the eponymous peach in James and the Giant Peach, one of Roald Dahl's best-loved novels. Throughout 2016, there were celebrations for Roald Dahl 100 including the launch of this new rose named in his honour.
