Rosa Macmillan Nurse

We love this rose. Jettison all ideas of starchy primness, the Macmillan Nurse rose is a glorious rosette of about 41 petals arranged impeccably into a four-inch bloom of ruffled, white petticoats that sometimes veer towards a peachy colour. The heavily scented, old-fashioned flowers grow in clusters and will bloom continuously throughout the summer and may even repeat in autumn. The leaves are green and glossy and the whole plant will do well even in some shade. Fabulously resistant to all the various ailments to which roses tend to succumb, Macmillan Nurse is a model of rose probity and beauty, and we think a great addition to our range of UK grown roses for sale.

Macmillan Nurses to the rescue

As well as being very beautiful, the Macmillan Nurse rose is extremely practical. Its compact shape means that it will slot in well into mixed borders with other perennial shrubs like Nepetas and Penstemons and it can even be used as an ornamental hedge. Unfussy about the luxuries of life, Macmillan Nurse will thrive even in poorer soils and with a bit of shade; it is hardy and makes a great subject for a pot on a terrace too. If your tastes tend to the more showy and colourful as well, then why not marry her up with Rosa de Rescht, resplendent with similarly shaped deep pink blooms? Otherwise, have a look at the long list of shrub roses to devise your own combinations.

About Macmillan Nurses

The Macmillan Nurses are a charity set up to help, support and nurse those with cancer. Amanda Beales bred this rose in 1998 and named it after the Macmillan nurses so that every rose sold meant that a donation went to the Macmillan charity. Introduced at the Chelsea Flower Show where it garnered plaudits straight away it has become one of the most popular double white roses around.
