Mutabilis Shrub Rose

The Mutabilis rose (Rosa chinensis) is also often called the Butterfly Rose due to the unusual way the petals change colour, often in the course of a single day. Starting off a bright yellow, they turn orange, then pink and finally crimson. On a good day a Mutabilis rose can look as if a mass of butterflies has landed on its foliage.

A larger than average shrub rose, growing to 7ft tall, Rosa chinensis works very well as a hedging rose, or as a small climber against a fence or wall. The simple flowers let off the the most heady, spicy scent.

Great for your garden

For the best flowering show, Mutabilis roses prefers sunny, sheltered spots. Stunning against a fence in a sunny garden or terrace, especially near a seating area, where the heady scent can be appreciated. Mutabilis roses with their dense and bushy foliage and thorny stems are also extremely effective when grown as a hedge . Impenetrable but beautiful and sweet smelling!

The flowers are very short lived but are produced incessantly from July through to September to stunning effect against the slim dark green foliage. However if you would like a rose with longer lasting blooms (although none of our other roses can change colour as you look at them!) take a look at our full list of UK grown roses.
