Description

Rose L'Aimant

If you like the informal beauty of a traditional cottage garden but want the performance of a modern repeat-flowering rose, then L'Aimant is for you. It's a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit winner, and thoroughly deserves the honour. As a bushy, repeat-flowering floribunda rose, it produces a mass of colour from large clusters of flowers over a long season, and it less formal than hybrid tea roses. See our full range of UK-grown floribunda roses.

The fully double flowers are wide and loosely cupped, with frilly, rose pink petals, splashed with deeper coral and salmon hues. In August and September, the colours intensify, giving an ever-changing colour palette. L'Aimant's strong, fruity fragrance is a real old rose scent that will not disappoint.

Goes well with...

Plant alongside traditional favourites such as lavender, catmint (Nepeta), and offset with taller plants such as hollyhocks. For later season contrast, try Echinacea and Asters.

It's ideal for mixed borders, backed by evergreen shrubs such as Choisya or Photinia, so there is still some interest in that part of the garden during winter when the rose is dormant. L'Aimant can be grown in a large container, providing it is kept well watered and fed.

For flower arrangers, rose L'Aimant is ideal for cutting, and its heavy perfume will fill a room with scent.

Cultivation Instructions

How to plant L'Aimant Roses

Choose a spot with as much light as possible. Dig a hole sufficiently deep to allow the rose to be planted with the graft union at soil level and with plenty of room for its roots which should be spread out. Improve the soil from the hole by removing roots, weeds, large stones and other rubbish and mixing in about 25% by volume of well-rotted compost or manure.

Position your rose so its roots are spread out, wet them and sprinkle them with Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi. If planting pot grown roses gently loosen some roots out of the ball before planting.

Then backfill the hole with mixed soil and compost, firming it gently as you go. Keep the union at the level of the surrounding soil. Water in thoroughly until established. Prune in the winter and feed twice, first in spring then later in the summer.
