Rose 'Lady Marmalade' (Floribunda)

Rosa, Rose 'Hartiger'

Hardy Shrub

 Customer Rating
Awarded 'Rose of the Year 2014', this gorgeous floribunda rose bears pumpkin-orange blooms with hints of apricot as the flowers mature. Rose 'Lady Marmalade' has all the vintage charm of old-fashioned roses, with cabbage-shaped blooms and a delicious sweet scent, but with the disease resistance of modern roses. Repeat-flowering throughout the summer and early autumn, this variety makes a stunning addition to borders and is a superb cut flower for a vase indoors. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 75cm (30").

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


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Rosehips and petals can be used in making syrups and the petals will add flavour to cold drinks or fruit dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant bare root 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. Will it bloom this year

    By Jill Coombes 23-05-2015

    I received this bare root plant several weeks ago, but as of today, it remains in the same state as when it was delivered, ie. no shoots on it whatsoever. Is it meant to grow and flower this year, or will it take time to establish and grow.

    Thank you for your review. Roses supplied in bareroot form will be dormant on despatch and can take a while to produce any top growth. Rest assured that this is perfectly normal as your Rose will be focusing its energy on establishing a strong root system. I am confident that you will see some top growth shorlty. If this is not the case, please contact us on ccare@thompson-morgan.com.
