Welcome to all my friends sharing the same passion for flowers!
For those who live nearby I could offer some cuttings. Just choose from my list of roses and leave a message. I'll be more than happy to see the population of roses growing. Anything, for a flowery world!
Those who grow roses in their garden grow also roses in their heart. And this world will be better.

Intoxicating Fragranced Roses - Summer Song



















"Summer Song" bred by David Austin (United Kingdom, before 2005).

This is a rose of beautiful and unusual colouring that is hard to describe – burnt orange

would be one possibility.






The flower starts as a rounded bud that gradually opens to a full cup


, with many inner petals arranged rather informally within a perfect ring of outer petals.





It has a lovely strong, mixed scent, which the Austin fragrance experts tell is ‘like a florist’s shop, with hints of chrysanthemum leaves, ripe bananas and tea’. In fact, the growers say it's the banana


mostly they sense in the fragrance...





It forms a bushy, upright shrub that can be pruned to grow tall or short, according to your requirements.





Shrub.


English Rose Collection.


Orange blend.


Strong, fruity, tea fragrance.





Average diameter of flowers - 3.75" - 9,5 cm. Large, very full (41+ petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters, old-fashioned bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.





Tall, bushy, upright. Medium, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.


Height of 4' (120 cm). Width of 3' (90 cm).


Zone 6.


Can be used for cut flower, garden or hedge.
