Rose of the Month – Christophe



After the dullness of winter, we’re featuring a rose that brightens things up as we head into spring.

‘Christophe’ is a floribunda rose with clusters of bright tangerine orange blooms – a real stand out colour in the garden. There is only a light scent to enjoy but the real stand out is the colour.

A tall grower with mid green foliage, this is one for the back of the border. Bred by Colin Dickson of Northern Ireland, it received a Certificate of Merit at the NZRS Trials in Palmerston North 2014.

Available from Matthews Nurseries or their resellers.

Hayden also serves as Deputy Chairman of the World Federation of Rose Societies Rose Trials Committee amongst other rose endeavours.
