The Bosworth Rose - Floribunda Bush Rose , Exclusive.
This rose was named on behalf of Bosworth Battlefield (Leicestershire County Council) to commemorate the momentous discovery of the remains of King Richard III in 2012 and his re-interment to Leicester Cathedral in 2015. The rose is being planted in purpose built raised flowerbeds at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre, the battle colours being most appropriate in the decision to choose this fantastic rose.
Very nicely shaped raspberry, plum and white striped flowers are formed in small clusters on tall upright strong stems which display the blooms so well. Bronzed edged semi glossed foliage with very high disease resistance. Bred by highly noted amateur breeder Ronnie Rawlins.
Fragrance: Lightly scented
Bush Rose Height: 120cm
