St Hilda's Rose
The St Hilda's Rose has been budded especially for the 125th celebrations and we have a limited edition available for sale.
The flowers are semi-cupped with a very soft buff centre, opening to pure white with fragrance. The plant is nicely bushy-shaped, with glossy green foliage, a height of approximately 1m, and it repeats flowers well.
