Rosa 'Dark Red' - rose

Dark Red is a patio/polyantha rose (the botanists are in disagreement as far as naming the groups). It has double flowers of velvet-like deep red colour. These roses are low maintenance but still breathtaking, low, cluster-flowered shrubs. They bloom from end spring in several phases until the frosts. In mild winters they can have buds and occasional flowers yet in December.

We suggest protecting it from early season diseases (black spot, fungi etc.) by applying a suitable fungicide to keep the plant healthy, fully leafed and abundantly flowering. They require almost no care apart from removing old flowering shoots. Pruning or clipping, if necessary, is possible in early spring. They are soil adaptable, for best results however plant them in deep, fertile, moist but well drained soil. They grow slowly, forming a low, dense shrub. Fully hardy.
