Beautiful lilac-blue blooms give this popular hybrid tea rose its characteristic name, and its pleasant fragrance make it a garden rose not to be missed.
One of the original, and still one of the best, of the 'blue' roses, 'Blue Moon' will flower through summmer and into autumn, giving you many months of super colour in your garden.
The pastel-toned flowers are help on strong, upright stems, which makes them ideal for cutting, so you can fill your home with the fragrance of this floral beauty too!
A large flowering hybrid tea rose, 'Blue Moon' is moderately vigorous with light green, glossy foliage which has a good resistance to disease - a great choice for novice and experienced gardeners alike.
Easy to grow and fully hardy, 'Blue Moon' will grow to a height of around 90cm. Supplied as a bare-root plant, dormant with no leaves ready to be planted out.
To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly. Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and don’t worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.
When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.
Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.
