Rose Breath of Life - Climbing Rose

Product ref: R10769

Availability: In stock

Breath of Life is a popular older variety which produces an abundance of large flowers, much like a hybrid tea garden rose but on a climbing plant. These blooms are one of the harder to find colours amongst the climbers, being a lovely Apricot shade, and as the flower ages these will gradually fade to an Apricot-pink colour. The blooms also have the benefit of a nice fragrance and they are set off beautifully by healthy dark green foliage. Strong plants supplied in approx 5 litre containers.

Roses, if purchased during the Winter will often be freshly potted, with the compost falling away from the roots when you come to plant. This is quite normal, as Roses will be dormant during the coldest months of the year and do not produce new roots until the warm weather of Spring. If you wish, you may keep potted Roses in the pots until the weather is warmer before you plant out, they should be kept outdoors and kept watered during this time, we do however recommend getting them planted out as soon as possible after receipt. We cut back and prune all of our Roses in line with good horticultural practice, so there will be no pruning for you to worry about after planting or during the first season, apart perhaps other than snipping off any tips that may die back before Spring. Annual pruning can commence during late winter, the year after planting.
