Rosa For Your Eyes Only (= ‘Cheweye­sup’)

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Dig In Plantsman’s Favourites -

It has long been the am­bi­tion of rose breed­ers to in­cor­po­rate the dark eye of the wild Per­sian rose, which hails from Iran and Afghanistan, into a healthy gar­den rose. Decades of work have come to fruition with this new group of roses that ex­hibit the un­usual dark eye. This has loose clus­ters of mauve-pink flow­ers with a darker cen­tral eye; in cool weather the flow­ers pro­duced are of deeper shades. It makes a dense shrub that flow­ers through sum­mer, well into au­tumn and has clean, dis­ease-free fo­liage.

Height 1m. Ori­gin Gar­den ori­gin. Con­di­tions Any rich soil that is not too wet in win­ter; full sun. Har­di­ness RHS H6. Sea­son Sum­mer – au­tumn.
