Description of Irene Watts Roses:
This rose has large, quite shaggy flowers that are mostly pale pink, with more of a pink-orange tone in the centre. The scent is good but not very strong and the flowers keep on coming right through the season. This is a small, bushy rose which can be used for ornamental hedging about half a metre high. Irene Watts is an ideal patio rose and is handy for squeezing into a busy flower bed.
