Product Information

Special Day Rose

Special Day Rose is a beautiful floribunda variety. Also known as Hermann Hesse Rose, after the famous novelist and poet, this rose is a piece of poetry for the garden! The delicate pink buds appear in spring, produced in abundance and held in clusters. They open to large, multi-toned flowers; creamy white with hints of pink, honey and soft ochre, that have a wonderful rich fragrance. With a long flowering season, the blooms show their beauty all summer long, appearing always to be in flower. Dark green, glossy foliage contrasts the pale flowers perfectly, creating a magnificent display. Boasting excellent disease resistance, and tolerating bad weather well, Special Day Rose is a wonderful addition to any garden. Compact and bushy, it would be beautiful in beds and borders, or alternatively showcased in patio pots and containers.

Hermann Hesse Rose

Special Day Rose is also known by the alternative name of 'Hermann Hesse Rose'. Hermann Hesse was a poet and novelist, and the winner of the Nobel Prize of Literature in 1946. Best known for his works on spirituality and authenticity, he was one of the most widely read and translated European author of the 20th century. This glorious rose was named in his honour - a little piece of poetry that everyone can have in their garden.

Potted Floribunda Roses

Floribunda roses are bush roses and thus ideal for borders and large patio pots, and can be planted straight away. 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. 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.
