Rosa 'Mehv9601' syn. Rosa 'Perennial Blue', Rosa 'Mehblue'

 

Rose 'Perennial Blue' (Rambler)

Ramblers are derived from R.luciae and are vigorous but simple stemmed and suitable for training in confined areas over pergolas, arbours and pillars. They are less suitable than climbers for walls as they are prone to mildew due to lack of air circulation. Like climbers, rambling roses need the support of a growing framework. Ramblers bear single, semi-double or double 2 inch wide flowers in large trusses during mid-summer. 'Perennial Blue' is a rambling rose with mauve coloured flowers and a sweet fragrance.

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.
