Rose of the day – Charlotte

Today’s rose is the English shrub rose, Charlotte.  This plant is probably in excess of 20 years old now and grows at the back of the house in full sun.  The flower bed is quite dry during the main summer months and the plants have to compete for moisture with the neighbour’s leylandii hedge.

Flowering at the moment (early June) it has soft yellow blooms and repeat flowers for most of the summer.  It has a delicate but not powerful fragrance.    Although it does not seem to flower as prolifically as some other roses in the garden it comes back reliably year after year producing a steady flow of two or three blooms at a time.
