Rosa Fragrant Delight Floribunda Rose

Fragrant Delight is an utterly delightful small floribunda rose carrying large sprays of coral pink, heavenly scented flowers until the autumn. The flowers open exposing deep yellow stamens blending brilliantly with the salmon blooms and, as long as it is deadheaded regularly, will flower all summer.  The young foliage emerges bronze green with reddish tints and is extremely glossy, staying glossy throughout the season. It tolerates all weather conditions but is not happy out of the sun. It is a cross between Chanelle and Whisky Mac, the latter being responsible for its magical perfume.

Great in your garden

This is such a pretty small floribunda with so many excellent qualities, no wonder it is still an extremely popular rose.  Fragrant Delight is perfect in a border, fronting other taller roses or in a low growing mixed planting.  Grow it en masse with small lavenders, particularly Munstead, where the dark purple of the lavender flowers will accent the salmon pink of the rose.  It is quite happy growing in a tub or large pot, or as a standard, and makes a perfect low growing flowering hedge.

Facts about Fragrant Delight

Fragrant Delight was bred by William E. ("Bill") Tysterman in the UK in 1978 and introduced by the Wisbech Plant Company Limited for whom he raised a number of roses.  One of the most famous is Doris Tysterman which was named for his wife.  It has won, justly, many prizes including being awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit, The Edland Fragrance Medal in 1976 and the James Mason Medal in 1988.
