Rose Versicolor (R.Mundi) for sale in Colchester, Essex

Rosa Versicolor (R.Mundi) is a beautiful classic shrub rose that flowers all summer long with cherry-pink flowers splashed with pale pink. 

This unusual rose has a spreading habit and is available at Poplar Nurseries.

Plant in an open, sunny position with open soil.  Avoid planting where roses have grown before, or transfer fresh soil to the site. Shrub roses can be planted in mixed borders or alongside other roses.  Roses love organic matter, so mix well rotted manure, leaf mould or compost into the soil and back-fill with a good fertiliser.  

Water well until established. 

Mulching will keep the soil weed-free and moist.  

For best results feed your rose with fertiliser in spring and again in summer. 

Remove faded flowers to encourage speedy repeat flowering.  

Prune your rose in March or before new growth by removing any dead or very thin branches and reducing the height by 1/3 to 2/3rds of the previous growth. 

Height: 1m (3.5ft).
