Winter Sun | Blooms of classic shape in the light yellow of the winter sun & its ability to flower deep into winter gave it its name. Its resistance to black spot allows the neat, chest high bush to remain clothed with glossy green foliage - ensuring a penetrating root system, uninterrupted sap flow and little chance of sunburn or stem kanker. ‘Winter Sun’is very close to our ideal of a modern rose.
Wedding Bells | ‘Wedding Bells’ is a Kordes rose that has been included in their Eleganzia range - large flowering hybrid teas with elegant flower shape and foliage that is impervious to fungus diseases. This well balanced bush grows to chest height and produces an abundance of large star shaped blooms of lasting quality. The colour is a pleasing blend of pinks.
Vuvuzela | ‘Vuvuzela’ produces lots of basals soon after planting out & becomes a dense, hip high bush to chest high by the end of the season. It blooms constantly and loves sunshine which intensifies the bright red orange flowing over the basic yellow. Most blooms are carried one to a stem, which makes it a productive pickable rose, but there are also clusters.
Thula | Named as a present for the 50th wedding anniversary of Anastasia & Gibson THULA. ‘A marriage made in heaven’.

Smell Me | This magenta-pink rose is a perfumed version of ‘Rina Hugo’. Blooms are shapely & have firm petals, which is unusual for such a strongly scented variety. Bush grows strongly, renewing itself by sprouting continuously from base to top. It is superbly suited as a background rose but performs equally well on its own or as a hedge.
Simply Samantha | In memory of the untimely death of a daughter & sister. Glowing cherry-red buds develop slowly into large, fragrant, pleasing pink blooms, opening just enough to allow bees to visit the deeply seated stamens. Extremely vigorous with long flowering stems, this tall bush rose makes a statement wherever it is planted.
