Rosa ‘Rosemoor’

Family: Rosaceae

Rosa ‘Rosemoor’ (Austough) is an English Shrub Rose that was bred by David Austin.  ‘Rosemoor’ was first introduced in May 2004, at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show.  This rose was introduced at the same time as three other roses, with each rose being named after one of the Royal Horticultural Society’s gardens.  Rosemoor is named in honour of the RHS’ garden in Devon, which is open to the public.

A repeat flowering rose, Rosa ‘Rosemoor’ has a naturally tough, robust, and healthy disposition.  Plants produce small, pale pink coloured, double, ruffled blooms.  As the flowers open, ‘Rosemoor’ flowers’ centres display petals of a deeper pink tone.  While the outer petals rapidly fade to the palest of pinks.  As the blooms age, they become ever paler, until this rose’s flowers just feature touches of blush, over the petals at the centre of the blooms.

The Royal Horticultural Society presented Rosa ‘Rosemoor’ with an Award of Garden Merit.  This award was created to help novice gardeners find reliable plants that will grow and flower well, given the appropriate garden conditions.

Rosa ‘Rosemoor’ grows to around 1.5m (5ft) tall.  Plants form bushy, rounded shrubs, that spread to cover an area of around the same distance, wide.

Plant Rosa ‘Rosemoor’ in any moist, but well-drained soil.  Choose a bright and sunny position to plant your Rosa ‘Rosemoor’ specimen; as although this rose will grow in partial shade, you’ll enjoy many more blooms and stronger, healthier growth, if you plant this rose in a sunnier location.
