Amber Queen Floribunda Rose Bushes

Amber Queen has large, many-petalled, fragranced, deep apricot-gold roses held in clusters above its plentiful dark green, glossy foliage which is noticeably bronze when young. It is thorny, bushy but tidy, and on the short side, to about 75cm, so it is well-placed towards the front of a border, and is suitable for a large patio container.

Growing Amber Queen Roses

Suitable for any well drained soil, they thrive on clay as long as the site isn't waterlogged in winter. Like many roses, they flower best in full sun, but tolerate partial shade well. 

Did You Know? 

Bred by Harkness from Southampton and Typhoon, registration code HARroony. Introduced to the market in 1984 with a Royal National Rose Society Certificate of Merit already in the bag (rose trials usually get new varieties a couple of years before their public release), it has won awards around the world in every decade since, most recently the 2010 Platinum Rose at The Hague Rose Trials.
In Austria, it is sold under the name Prinz Eugen van Savoyen, a national hero who volunteered to fight in the 1683 Battle of Vienna, breaking the Turkish siege of the city, when he was 20 years old, and going on to become of the country's most renowned Field Marshals. 

Planting Instructions

How to plant Floribunda Roses

Bare root roses are planted between late autumn and early spring (approx November-March), and container grown plants at any time of year. 

All floribundas like a good amount of sun and hate being under trees. If planting against a wall, leave about a 45cm (18") space.

Dig a hole deep enough to place the graft union between your rose's stem and roots at soil level (so it's at approximately the same level in the soil as it was before being transplanted), with plenty of room for the roots to spread out.
Improve the soil from the hole by removing rubbish, large stones, weeds and roots, then mixing in about 25% by volume of well rotted compost or manure and dusting it with bone meal. It is usually more convenient to do the mixing on a ground sheet or in a wheelbarrow. 

If your rose is bareroot, wet the roots before planting. It often helps to make a small mound at the base of the hole to set the base of the rose onto and spread the roots over.
If pot grown, soak the pot and then gently loosen some of the roots. Sprinkle some Rootgrow onto the soil, put the rose on top of it, and sprinkle the rest over the roots. 

When the roots are spread out and the graft union is level with the soil, backfill the hole with the improved soil, firming it down as you go. Water in thoroughly, water again two days later, and then keep watering in dry spells during the first and second growing seasons. 

Ornamental roses are hungry feeders and flower best when they are mulched every year and given rose food during the growing season.
