Not quite black but possibly the closest to it in a rose - this beauty will be admired by all in your garden with its sumptuous deep crimson-purple blooms.A 'Hybrid Tea' variety, it produces large, elegant, fragrant blooms in abundance all summer-long, from June right through to September. In bud, the flowers are the deepest chocolate maroon, which lightens as the petals unfurl, creating a real to-die-for classic rose. Borne on long strong stems, the blooms stand proud in the border and will also fill large patio containers. Easy to care for and best in full sun. Like most roses prune in late winter cutting back hard to a bud as the flowers are borne on new growth that follows.Supplied as a freshly potted, professional quality plant in a 3L pot.Care InformationTo prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly.When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.Roses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought-dry.Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil. Plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is around 3cm below soil level.Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry.Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.For best results, feed roses in late-March/April and again in late July.
