Peach Melba a brand new climbing rose from Kordes.
This year we are happy to reintroduce some old Austin roses which have subsquently retired from U.K production. Highly requested ‘The Prince’ (1990) and Sharifa Asma (1989) we managed to resource. These are likely to sell out early into this season but we hope to build up numbers in the next few years to meet demand.
New to the U.K market are some Poulsen varieties ‘Olivia’ (2020) ‘Nelly’ (2020) which now are exlusive to us and are part of our cottage styled range of Renaissance Roses. While ‘Peach Melba’ (2018) a favourite in Germany is likely to be popular. It won the ADR in Germany Rose Trials (similar to our own RHS Golden Merit). A very healthy short climber with bright apricot and pink blooms. This is sure to be popular with the lovers of colourful cultivars.
Our speciality of Old Roses has expanded a little further to include R. davidii (Ancient wild rose) and ‘Therese Bugnet’ (Rugosa Hybrid 1950). When deciding on introducing to our collections, we try to find attributes that are hard to find among modern roses, like Therese Bugnet’s almost thornless stems, to Rosa davidii’s interesting shaped autumnal hips.
Often confused with the original rose of York; Alba Maxima; we now grow ‘City of York’ (1945) an excellent climbing rose, which has caught our attention only until recently with favourable reviews seen among the avid online rose community.
