Rose 'Princess Alexandra of Kent' (Shrub)

These hardy deciduous shrubs are hybrids between the species and old roses. They are of informal habit reaching a height and spread of 5 feet. The flowers can be single or semi-double and open flat out. Some are slightly fragrant. They are generally repeat flowering and are borne either singly or in small clusters from mid to late summer. Shrub roses require only light pruning although old and weak wood should be removed from the base occasionally. ‘Princess Alexandra of Kent’ has large full-petalled and deeply cupped flowers of warm pink. They have a delicious fresh tea fragrance and appear above lush, clean, mid-green foliage.

Planting

From Late Autumn TO Late Spring

Prepare the planting site by digging over the bed and incorporate liberal quantities of well rotted manure or compost; lighten heavy clay soil with half rotted straw. Dress the top soil with plenty of peat mixed with hop manure and chopped up turf. Fresh animal manure is harmful to the roots and should only be used in the bottom spit. Where possible, prepare the planting site a few weeks in advance. Do this in late summer for planting in autumn. Plant at any time between late autumn and late spring. Prepare a planting mixture of bone meal and moist peat. Spread out the roots in the planting hole and add the planting mixture until the roots are covered. Add soil and firm in the plant by treading.
