Ballerina Shrub Rose

Ballerina is a rounded shrub rose carrying huge sprays of small, single, slightly scented pink flowers with white centres that are carried continuously through the summer. This is one of those "must have" roses. It flowers all summer long. As a shrub rose, it tends to be more disease resistant than some of the more highly bred bush roses. It can handle semi-shade and the clusters of flowers are ideal for table centre pieces. It is such a good rose that it holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Given some of the wonderful roses that do not have an AGM, this makes Ballerina a really outstanding rose.

For the gardener who wants shrub roses in their collection or is looking for a good flowerer that can handle a bit of shade, then our UK grown Ballerina roses should be on your short list, but if they are not for you or if you want to look at roses to plant in the same border, then why not browse our full range of roses for you to buy here.

Great for your garden

As with many shrub roses, Ballerina likes good soil in a sheltered spot but it is a tough little thing and can handle a bit of cold or wet. Because it is a shrub rose, it can handle a bit of shade. No rose will grow in the dark, but Ballerina is better than most in this regard. In the right position this is a rose that will form a well rounded bush about 4ft tall and wide (1.5m x 1.5m) so it of a size to look good in the middle of a rose border. However do not hide it away, as when if full flower it can be hard to see the leaves. A great sight..

Rosa Ballerina Trivia

Ballerina was bred by the Rev. Joseph Pemberton (his nursery in Romford later became Bentall's Roses) in the 1920's. He died in 1926 and Ballerina was not introduced until 1937 by Ann Bentall. It is thought to have been named by Joseph after a great-niece he saw dancing by herself in his garden.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
