This month, we feature a promising new miniature type rose that has been recently released in New Zealand.
Floranza ® George Best has large clusters of small to medium sized dark red blooms and is a welcome addition to the stable of red flowering miniature type roses grown in this country. Very eye – catching in full bloom, the short, bushy growing plant is very healthy with glossy green foliage.
Bred by Colin Dickson of Northern Ireland who named it after the famous football player, it will be a stand out in any garden and also makes a great short standard.
Available from Amore Roses.
