Blue For You Floribunda Rose Bushes. 3 Litre Pots

Still not a truly blue rose (they'll get there one day), the dainty lilac-purple new flowers unfurl and open wide to let the bees in, revealing a white centre as the outer petals fade to a pale lavender-blue. The scent is sweet and pleasant, but doesn't carry far. Very few thorns, dense and bushy habit to 1m.

Growing Blue For You Roses

Suitable for any well drained soil, they thrive on clay as long as the site isn't waterlogged in winter. They are quite shade-tolerant, and are suitable for large patio containers. 

They produce rose hips, so dead head them promptly or they will stop flowering well. At the end of the season, you can leave the final ones on the stem for some winter interest, but removing them will help the plant to start flowering again early the following year.  

Did You Know? 

Bred by Peter J. James in 2001, code PEJamblu, it wasn't widely available until 2007. It holds a Royal National Rose Society Show Trial Grounds Certificate, which only confirms that it grows as advertised, but any award from the now former oldest plant society in the world is worth a mention.
It is sold in other countries as Ellerines Rose, Honky Tonk Blues or Pacific Dream.

The seed parent was Natural Beauty (a hybrid tea) and the pollen parent was a cross of Summer Wine (a climber) and an unnamed floribunda.
