This is a rose of exceptional delicacy and charm, perhaps more so than any other rose we know. The flowers are shallowly cupped and about 3 inches across; the petals arranged in a most perfect rosette formation – their colour being a very pure soft pink; the outer petals paling a little towards the edge. It bears some resemblance to an old Alba Rose such as 'Queen of Denmark'. There is a delightful, fresh, fruity fragrance with hints of raspberries and tea.
Named for the famous RHS Gardens at Wisley, where many English Roses are planted. This variety should not be confused with a rose named 'Wisley' which, although beautiful, did not live up to our standards for health.
The growth is elegantly arching, producing its flowers along the stems and building up into a fine, vigorous shrub. This can reach up to 5ft in height, although it can also be pruned back harder, when it can easily be maintained at around 3½ to 4ft, as required. It is a good choice for both formal and informal areas of the garden. It will also form a relatively tall hedge.
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.
