Happy Retirement Roses

Happy Retirement is one of those gorgeous, trouble-free specimens you'll always be pleased you made room for in the garden. The pretty clusters of soft-pink flowers are held on sturdy stems and open from pointed dark pink buds. Being a repeat-flowering rose, it will bring colour from June or July right through until September or later. The flowers are lightly scented, and the foliage is remarkable, too, a healthy glossy green. Browse our entire collection of Floribunda roses here.

It has the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, so it's been tried and tested; it really is remarkably disease-resistant. It makes a stunning hedge, growing to around 1.2m in height and with an attractive habit.

How to plant in the garden

Grow Happy Retirement as a hedge in a sunny spot, or plant it towards the back of a mixed border. Classic cottage garden plants, roses (especially of the soft-pink variety) associate well with blue or purple hardy geraniums, catmint (nepeta), lavender, salvia, alchemilla mollis, stachys, verbascum, campanulas and delphiniums – to name just a handful of favourites. The last three will provide tall vertical accents to contrast with the rounded shape of the rose, while alchemilla, stachys and geraniums make wonderful underplanting specimens.

Better than a carriage clock
