Plant details

Genesis' is an orangey-peach flowered patio rose. It forms a short, bushy plant about 40-50cm tall. It's compact size makes it ideal for use in large containers with soil-based compost. Alternatively, it can be used at the front of the border where it associates well with other pastel-coloured flowers, hardy geraniums and lavender.Like all roses it will benefit from regular deadheading throughout the summer months. Prune lightly in autumn or early spring, to remove any weak or damaged growth and shorten any long shoots to create bushy plants. After pruning feed with a rose fertiliser.
