Burgundy Ice Floribunda Rose
Burgundy Ice is one of the darkest flowered floribundas, making a dramatic statement. The cupped, semi-double deep purple flowers are velvety and sweet scented. In terms of colour planning, they go wonderfully well with pink, cream and silver and it is stunning with a lavender border (have a look at Hidcote Lavender). It is a healthy rose with good disease resistance and glossy foliage. Flowering starts in June and runs through to the middle of October.

Great for your garden
All floribunda roses like good soil in a sheltered, sunny spot. However, the perfect location is not essential as Burgundy Ice is perfectly able to deal with colder spots and can even handle a little shade. It reaches about 4ft (1.3m), so we advise placing it towards the rear of the border where it can act as a backdrop to lighter, brighter roses. It looks wonderful planted in a triangular group of three with 80 cms between the plants.

How to plant Burgundy Ice
You can order bareroot roses at any time and plant them from November to April, or container roses are available all year round.
Choose a spot in the border with good light. Dig a hole large enough so your rose will be planted with the graft union at soil level and with plenty of room for its roots around the sides. Improve the soil from the hole by removing weeds, large stones, rubbish and roots and adding a shovel full of compost or rotted manure. Sprinkle Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi in the bottom of the hole so it will make contact with the roots. Potted roses should have some roots gently teased out of the rootball before planting.
Position your Burgundy Ice rose so its roots are spread out and backfill the hole with soil, firming it gently as you go. Water in thoroughly.
