Rosa 'Growing Hope'

Plant details

A new floribunda, launched at the 2006 Hampton Court Flower Show, this gives a powerful show of deep-red flowers right through summer. It's a good ingredient for a red or hothouse border needing a strong injection of bold colour. This is excellent at the front of dark-leaved cannas, with the likes of ground-hugging Geranium 'Ann Folkard' to the front. This rose was launched in 2006 to help the Cystic Fibrosis Trust charity. Cut back in February, pruning from one-half to three-quarters of the growth, forcing up plenty of new spring shoots.
