Description of Rachel Roses:
Rachel is a big rose with masses of frilly petals in the centre and a gentle two-tone colour. Most of the flower is a creamy peach colour and the outer petals have a slight purple blush, with a small amount of spotted patterning. The scent is good and while each individual flower doesn't last very long, they keep on coming from spring to autumn.
This is a really shrubby rose that goes well towards the back of a border.
