Rose 'Blue Eyes' (Floribunda Rose)

Rosa

Hardy Shrub

This astonishing repeat-flowering Floribunda rose is a breeding breakthrough, and highly sought after for its unusual colouring. The abundant clusters of wide, delicate-pink blooms are each decorated with an exquisite mauve-blue centre blotch and a beautiful, sweet fragrance. Rose 'Blue Eyes' has good disease resistance and a short bushy habit that makes it ideal for planting in containers or borders for a head-turning display. Height: 120cm (47"). Spread: 90cm (35").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.


Companion planting: Try growing roses with garlic, chives, thyme or mint to help deter aphids and blackfly.

Plant bareroot roses at the earliest opportunity following delivery. To avoid the risk from the build-up of harmful soil organisms and disease, choose an open position in full sun that has not been planted with roses in recent years. Roses enjoy a rich, fertile, well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting roses and add a small handful of granular fertiliser to the planting hole.
Feed and water rose plants regularly and deadhead faded flowers. When growing roses it is necessary to remove any suckers that arise from the base of the plant, below the graft union. In winter, begin pruning floribunda roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce the stems to 20cm (10") above ground level. Side shoots should be reduced to two buds. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.

  1. pink not white

    By E Valerie Fell 02-08-2015

    I purchased a white blue eye rose for my daughters garden last autumn which she has planted and its looks very healthy the only problem is that is a pink rose so disappointed to say the least.
