Plant details

One of the primary attractions with this fresh and lightly scented rose is the subtle transition of pastel shades of colour as the flower develops. Susan Daniel's flowers have peachy tones at the early opening stages of the flowering which later develop to an apricot blush, and eventually become almost pale cream. The petals reflex to reveal stamens in gold, maroon or chocolate. These subtle but impressive colours look impressive whether the magnificent sprays are planted in the garden or are cut for a flower display. The rose has been named after Susan Daniel the opera singer who has twice recovered from primary cancers, separated by 13 years and has since returned to sing at the Vienna State Opera and La Scala within weeks. Introduced at the RHS Chelsea Flower show 2004 by Harkness Roses.
