Product Information

Simply The Best Rose

Simply The Best Rose was crowned Rose of the Year 2002, and for good reason! Any garden will be wowed by the outstanding display of beautifully shaped, burnt orange double flowers. The double blooms have a strong and captivating scent, and repeat flowers all through the season. The coppery orange flowers contrast well with the glossy, bright green foliage. Ideal planted individually or en masse, it makes an incredible display. Producing masses of blooms from early summer through to the first frosts, this rose is ideal for beds and borders. Also a favourite in cut displays, so the glorious flowers and scent can be enjoyed inside and out.

Potted Hybrid Tea Roses

Hybrid tea roses are bush roses and thus ideal for borders and large patio pots, and can be planted straight away. With their long stems and large flowers, they are also a favourite of cut displays.

For more information on the different types of roses we offer and therefore what may be most suitable for your garden, see our handy guide.

How will my potted rose arrive?

Our roses are cut back for the Winter to promote root growth, thus will arrive with short but healthy stems between October and March. Roses in April and May would be expected to have new growth and leaves, and then between May and September buds and blooms. *Please note: These are estimates and can vary due to weather conditions and exact variety of rose.

Your rose will be in a large 5.5L container, which is recyclable and thus can be disposed of accordingly in your home recycling bin.

We take care to be as sustainable as possible here at English Roses, and so avoid single use plastics at all costs. Our packaging is therefore fully recyclable, even down to the strapping on our cardboard boxes. Our gift wrapping also contains natural materials, many of which can be repurposed and reused.

A fantastic ethical gift, from a small independent UK business.

14 reviews for Simply The Best Rose

  1. Maureen Dalkin

    So pleased. Came home to find very healthy rose with excellent packaging and delivery driver had left Rose exactly where I had asked. Rose is called ‘Simply the Best’ and in my opinion that is exactly what English Rose’s .co.uk is too

  2. Alison Brown

    My MIL died three weeks ago and she wanted ‘simply the best’ by Tina Turner at her funeral 🤣🤣🤣. I wanted to get my wife and her two siblings a rose for their mother. Initially looked for Roses with Angela in the name, couldn’t find one but then found this. Just perfect. Handed them over yesterday. They were thrilled. Excellent looking plant about to burst into bud. Superb

  3. Alison Brown

    Ordered three of the same Rose for three siblings (inc my OH) whose Mum had just died and wanted (and got ) Simply The Best played at funeral. Beautiful condition on arrival. Now all planted.

  4. Lynne Dunnage

    Beautiful rose I ordered for my mother in law for my late father in law. Full of blooms and looks very healthy. Just a few black spots on some of the leaves.

  5. Kathryn Formon

    Brought these roses for a very special reason, I have lost my Gran recently and the last gift of love she received was this rose x

  6. J C

    Only just received, condition of Rose on arrival, pristine, undamaged, & as I expected, re your reputation. Guide leaflets excellent, again as expected.

  7. Debs Thomas

    Would’ve loved it to be in flower when it arrived, but looks very healthy and ready to flower next year.

  8. Mrs Margaret Whittle

  10. susan neil

    This is the 2nd time I have ordered from you and I was a little worrried as it is so late in he year but it arrived promptly, perfectly packaged and pruned so it looked ready to grow next year. Thank you

  11. Jane Brown

    A lovely rose and customer service

  12. Jane Brown

    Very helpful staff

  13. Jane Bell

    The rose arrived on the day specified and in perfect condition. Although there was no foliage or blooms at this time of the year the plant looked very healthy. The rose was for a 60th birthday present so the title was very appropriate.

  14. Wendy moncrieff

    Perfect present excellent Christmas present will cherish for a long time.
