About Renaissance Roses:
Renaissance Roses, such as Bridget, are a new range of shrub roses from Poulsen of Denmark. They have large full blooms with an old-fashioned look and are all strongly scented. They are hardy, healthy and come in a variety of colours, many are good for flower arranging. All repeat flower and have good to excellent disease resistance.
We have been growing Renaissance Roses here at Trevor White Roses for nearly 20 years and what impresses us most with this collection is their durability of flower. The head of the flowers tend not droop like other modern roses and will always produce abundance of blooms well into autumn.
Pruning Guide: Prune by one third in February/March. Make sure to deadhead spent blooms regularly.
