Molineux' is a variety that repeat flowers freely, producing medium-sized neat rosettes for you to enjoy throughout the summer and into the autumn. The petals have a touch of orange, but mature into a deep yellow, which is beautifully set off by the mid-green foliage. The rose has a classic tea rose fragrance, with a hint of musk. It has won the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society, the Gold Medal of the President's Trophy for the 'Best New Rose of the Year' and the Henry Edland Medal for the 'Best Scented Rose' at the Royal National Rose Society Trials.
This rose has been named after the Molineux Stadium, where Wolverhampton Wanderers play, for Sir Jack Hayward who was the former Chairman of the Club. The name originates from Benjamin Molineux, a successful local merchant who purchased the land in 1744.
This healthy and reliable shrub gives upright, compact and bushy growth which makes it perfect for planting in formal rose beds. It is also suitable for mixed beds and borders, hedging and containers.
Roses thrive on sunshine, ideally a minimum of four hours each day to perform their best. However, roses can still perform well in shadier locations, with selected varieties suitable for growing against a north wall.
Roses can be planted year round, but avoid doing so when the ground is frozen, waterlogged or in periods of drought. Dusting the roots with Mycorrhizal Fungi when planting will aid establishment. Allow your rose plenty of space to develop to its best, sited away from intense competition of trees & hedges.
Apply a thick layer of mulch around the base of the plant in early spring to help retain moisture and help keep competing weeds at bay. Gently fork rose fertiliser into the soil surface and continue to water well throughout the growing season. Dead-head flowers to encourage fresh new blooms to follow.
