A striking Bicolour.
It is world renowned with its painted red outer petals blending into an ivory-cream interior. The flowers are beautifully formed with a heady perfume that you wish all roses would have. The bush is luxuriant and strong with matt olive green leaves, but the odd spray for mildew is necessary in humid weather.
Repeat flowers from October to May.
1.5m high x 1.0m wide.
Bred by Herbert Swim and Ollie Weeks.
Double Delight also won the AARS award for
“Best Rose of The Year 1977”.

Planting, Position & Preparation
Roses require 5-6 hours of full sun per day for best performance. Roses tolerate a wide range of soil types, but your garden bed must be well drained. If your soil is lacking in quality or drainage, mix a premium potting mix or mulch or your own compost into your soil. Dig a hole approx.. 500 x 500 x 300mm deep. Plant your rose halfway up the main trunk, do not cover the graft or the trunk where branches begin. Water in well. If winter rains do not occur, water your rose every two weeks. Do not feed your rose at this time. Feed during early spring with a well-balanced slow release fertiliser.
