Growing Countess of Wessex Roses

Good soil in a sheltered, sunny spot is ideal for these large blooms, but like most Rosas, they are tough plants, and these tolerate a bit of shade well.

She will form an upright bush, suitable for the middle of a border or towards the back, but do not hide her away.

In Your Garden Design

The rich creamy flowers make this an ideal rose to use in any border except a ‘hot’ scheme because it is a cool coloured plant, and as unflappable as its namesake. It would enhance any design and would look equally good in a pot on a terrace or a deck.
