Trumpeter Floribunda Rose

Unlike many roses, Trumpeter is really well named. Its magnificent scarlet red, double, scented flowers are a clarion call across any lawn. The first blast is in June and then the chorus continues without stopping until late October or, in a warm autumn, into November. The flowers are fully double and stand to attention come rain or shine on bushes of up to 3ft (80cms) tall. The foliage is so glossy it almost shines and the plant is extremely disease resistant.

Trumpeter is an outstanding all round red rose that deservedly holds an Award of Garden Merit for its colour, performance and tractability.

Great for your garden

Trumpeter rather demands to be centre stage. It is not a big rose but size is not everything, and planted in a group it is a real eye catcher. Also excellent as an edging rose and fantastic in a hot border. Or (it was his favourite rose) planted as Frances' father used to, dotted around the place wherever he wanted a bit of colour. Roses and bulbs go well together as the bulbs love the top dressing and mulching roses get and repay the gardener by putting on a show long before the roses flower. For real drama, follow the red theme through and plant a tulip like Red Riding Hood.

Trumpeter is an unfussy rose although it flowers best in a sunny spot it can manage on 5-6 hours direct light a day. It is as hardy and disease resistant as any rose you can buy today and will easily cope with more exposed locations. If you are planting in a rose border, we suggest that you plant a minimum of 3 in a triangular group with the plants spaced about 60cms (2ft) apart.

Did you know

Trumpeter is yet another AGM winning rose bred by Sam McGredy. It was brought to market in 1977, five years after he moved to New Zealand. The flowers are unusually regular and allegedly have exactly 39 petals each. It is a difficult and somewhat destructive act to count them but if you did the number would be there or thereabouts.
