An exciting new introduction, Rosa 'New Imagine' will give your garden, patio or balcony the uplift that you've been looking for! Covered in large, double and semi-double blooms of two-tone burgundy-violet, broadly streaked with cream and white, this is a unique rose bush, quite unlike any other.
As well as the striking flowers, 'New Imagine' is blessed with a pleasant perfume, giving you even more pleasure as you study its beautiful blooms, each one a different tapestry of colour and tone - you'll be mesmerised!
This vigorous and long flowering shrub rose has good disease resistance and relatively few thorns (although not thornless) and is ideal for growing both in the garden or in a container on your deck, patio or balcony as long as it receives a good amount of sunshine.
A member of the floribunda family of roses, New Imagine has an attractive upward, bushy habit, and its remarkable flowers are produced in clusters from June until the first frosts, so you'll get months of colour and ample opportunity to fill a vase with the glorious blooms.
Supplied as a bare root rose bush, ready for immediate planting. Ultimate height 70-80cm (2-2.5ft).
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 donít 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.
