Due to its compact size, it is ideally suited to cultivation in a large pot or container, as well as for a low hedge.
An excellent flower for cutting.

Please note, in the autumn this rose is supplied as a potted plant, and will not produce any new roots until spring so it is usual for the soil to fall away from the roots when you remove it from the pot. It is best to plant it immediately.
