Rosa 'Dawn Chorus'

Rosa 'Dawn Chorus'

Description: A large-flowered Hybrid Tea rose freely producing masses of superb deep orange classic shaped flowers throughout the summer. the vivid blooms stand out strongly from the glossy green reddish leaves. Hardy plant with good disease resistance.

This repeat flowering rose with slight fragrance is good for planting on mass for show and is deserved rose of the year winner.

Climate/Position: Open and sunny position prefered.

Height/Spread: Medium sized rose - 75cm x 40cm upright habit.

Soil Requirements: Though roses will tolerate most soil types, for best results roses prefer deep, rich, free draining soils with plenty of organic matter.

Avoid planting in sites that have previously been used for growing roses. Add organic matter before planting and mulch regularly for best results.

Pruning: Pruning roses is best undertaken at the end of February. On all plants remove any dead and diseased stems, as well as very weak and thin stems, and then the oldest stems to encourage rejuvenation. Try to develop an open vase shaped bush for better air movement to reduce risk of pests and disease. Cut down the height by between one third and two thirds.

Within the flowering season, dead heading blooms after colour throughout the season will improve the overall look and flowering capacity of the plant.

Special Requirements: Feeding roses in spring and applying annual mulch will enhance performance, encourage healthy growth and lead to improved flowering.
