More about Freska Collection roses:
Pheno Geno Roses have been running since 1956, and they now have facilities in the Netherlands and Serbia. Their latest collection of striped roses – the Freska Collection – is inspired by the painting technique, presenting a unity of art and nature. Here is what they write about their exquisite Collection:
“Freska, Serbian version of Italian word fresco, has been employed in wall painting since antiquity. In Serbian ecclesiastical art, it has been in practice since the 13th century and it decorates the walls of well-known Serbian monasteries.
As if an invisible painter had struck his brush upon the gentle petals of the roses, every single variety of this collection is a masterpiece of elegance. Vivid colours of these roses will undoubtedly make them a centrepiece of your garden regardless of where you plant them.”
Pruning Guide: Prune by one third in February/March. Make sure to deadhead spent blooms regularly.
