Christchurch remembers




This rose is dedicated to the 185 people who lost their lives in 2011 Canterbury earthquake, New Zealand.

This rose has scarlet red flowers which darken around the edges with age. The many petalled blooms last well whether on the bush or in a vase. Christchurch Remembers is a floribunda, however, flowers are relatively large and form many smaller clusters, still producing plentiful blooms. The bush is upright with medium green glossy foliaged shows very good health.
