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
White Wings Hybrid Tea Roses for sale
About White Wings
White Wingsis a single flowered hybrid tea rose reaching 4' x 3' (1.2m x .90m). Bred in Montebello, California by Alfred Krebs in 1947, White Wings is a creamy white hybrid tea with sweetly scented blooms in clusters that it produces continuously throughout the summer. The flowers have papery petals and russet anthers providing a striking contrast and making it a very showy rose indeed. It is reasonably disease resistant and will keep providing a good show with regular deadheading. It prefers sun or full sun but will tolerate a small amount of shade.
Great for your garden
White Wings makes a very good specimen rose flowering, as it does, all summer. It bears delightful, papery cream single flowers that have a sweet old rose fragrance. It is small, reaching a maximum height of 4', and is, therefore, best as a specimen or at the front of the border. The startling contrast of the creamy petals and russet coloured anthers means it can look spectacular when grown in groups of 3 or 5. It is quite thorny but has good foliage setting off the blooms. It needs pruning hard as do all hybrid teas and will respond well to being mulched in the spring and autumn.
