An eye-catching, bicoloured rose, producing masses of two-toned flowers. 'Raspberry Ripple' has red blooms that are boldly splashed and striped with white, superb as a cut flower and striking in mixed flower bordersA repeat flowering floribunda rose, Raspberry Ripple produces clusters of large, blooms throughout the summer and into the autumn, so if you're looking for a rose a little out of the ordinary, then this is the one for you. Being a floribunda, this rose bush has good disease resistance, is hardy and easy to grow, and produces large clusters of lightly fragrant blooms over a long season, making it ideal in the garden or in a large pot on the patio or balconyThe incredible colour is caused by what is known as a 'jumping gene' which creates instability in the colour genes of each flower, so it can be either of two colours. This makes each petal and each flower 100% unique, giving a lovely contrasting mix - and it only occurs in red and orange rosesSupplied as a freshly potted, professional quality plant in a 3L potCare InformationTo prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularlyAdd mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quickerRoses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought-dryRoses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.
