Velvet Fragrance Roses

Velvet Fragrance is like the archetypal, fairytale rose - the one that the princess always gets. It has tight, pointed deep red buds that open into a high centred, full and voluptuous rose. The petals are like heavy damask, a description that fits its sensational, almost overpowering scent. Each rose is an unwavering deep, crimson red. As if all of that romance was not enough, the plant itself is muscular in its strength and ability to withstand the common rose afflictions. The leaves are relatively dark with coppery overtones. As a hybrid tea, you only get one flower per stem but they last for a long time and if you deadhead you will find that roses keep reappearing until late autumn. If your tastes lie in a more sedate flower, why not have a look at our range of Hybrid Tea Roses

A boudoir rose

Velvet Fragrance would make the perfect Valentine's Day rose if it were flowering then - who on earth planned St Valentine in freezing February? - and consequently, a bunch of these in a vase would be no surer signal of a hot date. Grow several in your cutting garden if you are feeling lucky..... So while being the seminal boudoir rose, Velvet Fragrance is a tremendous border rose too because it retains its compact shape and does not become leggy like many other hybrid teas. Having said which it is always good to grow some pretty plants like Salvias or Geraniums around hybrid teas to cover their ankles. Being so dark leaved, it benefits from a halo of silver-leafed plants nearby. We also like the idea of growing it with other hybrid teas like the wonderful white Pascali for a wars of the roses effect.

A fragrant fry up

Velvet Fragrance was the inspired work of Gareth Fryer of Fryer's Roses fame in 1988. Rarely has a red rose been produced to rival it.
