I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
Rosa Moyesii Geranium Roses
Rosa Moyesii Geranium
Rosa moyesii Geranium is a modern seedling of Rosa moyesii, which is a species rose introduced from China. It is the best known and most widely grown of the moyesii hybrids and rightly so. Although a big shrub, it is a more compact plant than its parent making it more suitable for a decent sized garden.
The flowers are a vibrant red and the whole plant is open and attractive reaching an eventual height of approximately 8ft
Great for your garden
Rosa moyesii Geranium is a large, open shrub rose and is best used as a centerpiece in a rose bed, surrounded, perhaps, by smaller cream and scarlet shrub roses, or in a shrub border in front of plants that will highlight the brilliant colour of its flowers, perhaps cotinus coggygria Royal Purple or another purple leaved shrub. The large, elongated hips are also particularly attractive and last well into the winter.
