More about Species Roses:
The melting pot from which all garden roses have evolved, our selection of Species Roses at Trevor White Roses are just a small selection from the hundreds in existence. Most are single flowered and are valued for the wonderful diversity of scents, foliage, hips and Autumn colouration. Some could even be called Wild Roses, discovered among hedgerows or in forests. Their simple unadulterated beauty lends them an affinity with wilder planting schemes.
Pruning Guide: Requires little pruning except the removal of any dead wood. Once established it is recommended some of the oldest shoots be cut right back after flowering to encourage new growth, remembering that flowers and fruit are produced on the previous years wood.
