Product Information

Special Occasion Rose

Special Occasion Rose produces an abundance of highly scented blooms over a long flowering season. The coppery apricot blooms are contrasted by the glossy dark green foliage, for an eye catching effect. The large flowers of this hybrid tea variety are ideal as cut flowers too, meaning they can be enjoyed both inside and out.

With healthy and vigorous growth, this rose also benefits from good disease resistance. Slightly shorter than a lot of hybrid teas, Special Occasion Rose makes a wonderful rounded plant, ideal for the front of beds and in pots.

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.
