PLANTING, POSITION AND 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.

Description

Declared in 1980 to be the world’s best rose!

This rose has been popular for over 40 years! Queen Elizabeth has the most wonderful large, double pointed pink flowers produced in clusters. Being such a tall and vigorous grower, Queen Elizabeth is a magnificent backdrop to any border garden with dark green, glossy and leathery foliage. It has enormous vitality and can be cut down hard to rejuvenate its profusion of blooms. With long stems and clusters of blooms, this has to be one the very best and toughest of roses. Grows to approx 1.8 meters tall. Queen Elizabeth has excellent disease resistance.

Repeat flowers from October to May.

Raised in 1954 by California’s Walter Lammerts, Queen Elizabeth won just about every top award including the AARS and was dedicated to the young Queen of England.
Year of Release – 1955
