Product Description

A very old variety of rose, Rosa gallica 'Versicolor'(or Rosa mundi, the French Rose), is a compact, bushy rose with matt, mid-green leaves and highly fragrant blooms, produced in small clusters from early summer. The semi-double flowers are quite large with stripes of pink, white and fuchsia, making a powerful statement in the garden.

Bushes are quite compact and are perfect for growing in pots, beds and borders and they also make very attractive, informal hedges.

Not just a pretty face, this was one of the first roses to be cultivated in Europe, and is often referred to as Rosa mundi, purportedly named after Rosamund Clifford, mistress of Henry II.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as a 3L potted plant ready for immediate planting, will reach approx. 100cm x 100cm

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • 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.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Rosa gallica 'Versicolor':

  • Roses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought dry.
  • Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.
  • Add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole and plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is just below soil level.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.

 

Aftercare Information for your Rosa mundi:

  • Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry.
  • Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
  • For best results, feed roses in in late-March/April and again late July.

 

Pruning Advice for Rosa mundi gallica:

  • To prune, 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.
  • Prune after flowering in late summer, cutting back long shoots by a third and cutting back side shoots by two-thirds.
