This distinctive rose variety has the most entrancing flower colour imaginable and one that is rarely seen in the whole rose genus. What is more, in this particular instance the beautiful blooms are held gracefully aloft on a strong 'Standard' stem with a ball of lush foliage that will become covered in blooms that stand proud above the rest of your patio displays. Flowering throughout the summer months it will be a major talking point within your patio garden and makes a perfect centre piece of any patio container, bed or border. As with all of our Patio Standard Roses, Blue Beauty is incredibly easy to care for - it is repeat flowering, totally winter hardy and perennial so it will create it's breathtaking display year after year.
Supplied as a dormant but freshly lifted bare root Half Standard that is 80cm tall. Keep the plant cool and the roots thoroughly moist until planting and once planted, water every few days for the first month whatever the weather. To ensure your rose gets away to the best possible start, whether planted in a pot or directly in to the soil, we strongly recommend providing support with a stout cane until the roots are fully established.
When your rose is flowering, normally from May until October each year, occasionally remove any spent blooms and feed fortnightly with good quality soluble plant food with a high potash content. This will make the display look even more attractive and also encourage the maximum display for the longest period. YouGardens' very own formulation of McDermott's Finest Fertiliser is perfect for this and is proven to give fabulous flowering displays.
Prune just once each year in February, merely tidying up the head into a symmetrical ball shape.
