Carding Mill (own root)
Rosa English Rose 'Carding Mill (own root)'
Carding Mill has flowers of beautifully mixed shades of pink, apricot and yellow, overall, giving the impression of rich apricot.
At the bud stage, when the petals are just starting to unfurl, the inside of the petals are a very rich, deep apricot as opposed to the paler, soft yellow undersides. When fully open the center of the flower is well filled with petals, their closeness giving the impression of a rich, apricot - pink. Around the center, the loose ring of petals curl in slightly and so show their pale apricot yellow undersides.
It will quickly make a lovely, bushy, rounded shrub with quite straight stems, the many flowers nodding just slightly.
There is a strong and beautiful myrrh fragrance. 40-80 petals
