New rose!

Home (South Africa) - - GARDEN DIARY -

‘St Dun­stan’s Cen­te­nary’ is a hy­brid tea that can claim the world-fa­mous ‘Peace’ rose as part of its an­ces­try. This rose was named for the cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tions of St Dun­stan’s Col­lege in Benoni and be­ing a hardy Eco-Chic rose, it’s dis­ease-re­sis­tant and there­fore less sus­cep­ti­ble to black spot and downy mildew. It bears pointed yel­low buds that slowly un­fold into large, full blooms lightly shaded with a sheen of pink. The fully-open blooms last well on the bush and in the vase. The up­right ma­ture bush reaches a height of 2m.
