Description of Light Fantastic Roses:
People cherish old heritage varieties with good reason, but new breeds like Light Fantastic demonstrate that progress is a really good thing. The lovely big lemon-sorbet coloured blooms on this rose are instant classics, but their strong petals also tolerate poor weather at flowering time. The big clusters of rose buds seem to build up pressure in late spring while other roses are starting to flower before they explode in vigorous waves. You will get several flushes over the summer with a bit of deadheading.
Light Fantastic doesn't have a very strong scent, but if you plant it next to a seated area you will be able to enjoy it.
This rose is happy in a large pot.
