Description of Rose de Rescht Roses:
A lovely little shrub rose with great foliage and strongly scented pom-pom shaped red-pink flowers that come in waves from late spring to autumn. Rose de Rescht tolerates shade, grows well in a pot and makes a decent low hedge.
This rose will flower well without attention when it is young, but once it reaches 5-10 years old, you need to prune it quite brutally each winter to encourage a good show of flowers for the coming season.
