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.
