Bred by Paul Hains, a well-known Australian rose grower and breeder, ‘Lady Endo’ is a beautiful hybrid tea rose with deep, fully petalled magenta pink flowers that sit on long stems. The blooms have a strong old world fragrance that’s just divine.
Lady Endo Rose, pictured below, grows to around 1.3 – 1.5 m tall with lush healthy foliage.
Treloar Roses will donate $2 from the sale of each Lady Endo Rose to Endometriosis Australia to help fund much needed research and education. This special variety will be available during winter as bare rooted plants.
When planting a bare rooted rose, choose a spot in the garden that receives at least 6 hours of sunshine a day and has good air flow. Dig a hole around 30 cm wide and deep. Mix some Yates® Dynamic Lifter® Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser into the soil dug from the hole.
Create a pyramid shaped mound of soil in the bottom of the planting hole. Place the rose in the hole with its roots sitting on and around the mound of soil. Ensure that the graft union (bump on the stem) will be sitting at least 5 cm above the final ground level. Backfill around the roots gently with Yates® Dynamic Lifter® Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser enriched soil and then water in well. Apply a layer of organic mulch, like bark chips or sugar cane mulch, around the new rose, keeping the mulch a few centimetres away from the stem. Keep the soil moist while the new rose establishes.
