Description
The quest for a blue rose has produced this intriguing variety with dark purple flowers. The shapely, semi-double blooms have an appealing sweet fragrance that adds to their appeal. This floribunda rose will repeat flower throughout the summer, with blooms fading to a grey-mauve as they mature. With a tall, upright habit Rose 'Rhapsody in Blue' makes a superb addition to borders, attracting pollinating insects to its nectar rich blooms. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 90cm (36").

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
