This is a very healthy growing rosebush that grows upright, and very bushy. The flowers grow in small clusters that appear in flushes throughout the growing season. This rose bush is also a very hardy variety.
These roses make particularly good cut flowers. The flowers are very long lasting in the vase, and there are very few prickles (thorns) on the bush.
This rose, Queen of Sweden, was named for the 350th anniversary of the treaty of friendship between Great Britain and Sweden.
Uses; Rose beds, borders, cut flowers.
If you like pink roses, this variety is especially nice. It has a charming old rose character, with a soft, delicate fragrance, that makes wonderful cut flowers that last a long time.
A group of three in the garden would make a stunning display!
