Nuits de Young shrub roses are a gorgeous mid-summer flowerer. The blooms are non-repeating, but unfurl into a wonderfully deep maroon purple flower with contrasting golden stamens and a heady unmissable scent. Fully opened the blooms display these deeply coloured, small, curved petals in a multiple tight layers, with a ring of lighter, sometimes white-flecked petals framing the bright yellow central stamens. Nuits de Young is not a large rose reaching around 3ft in height and spread when fully grown. The growth and foliage are neat and slender and are quite dark in colour. Careful thinning of the growth when pruning is rewarded when the plant flowers.
