Why We Love It
Why We Love It
Enjoy bright, fire-engine red flowers throughout the summer and autumn with the stunning 'Trumpeter' rose. It's one of the floribunda varieties known for long-lasting colour and clustered groups of big, bold blooms, so you can delight in the fiery shade for months (with just a bit of deadheading). The magnificent double flowers are backed by shiny dark green foliage that drops off in the cooler months before bursting back to life in the springtime. This hardy shrub is easy-to-grow in a pot or a border, and as a bonus is very good at resisting disease. The 'Trumpeter' rose has a light fragrance, so think about planting yours in a container near the front door for a sweet scent whenever you walk outside.
The decorative pot is sold separately. Find the perfect base for any style of planting, explore our full range of pots here.

- Water the potted rose to soften the rootball.
- Dig a large hole that's twice the size of the plant's rootball.
- Mix compost into the base of the hole, then remove the pot and sprinkle fertiliser on the roots.
- Position the plant in the hole, then fill it in making sure to cover the rootball with a compost and soil mix.
- Water around the base of the plant well and add mulch in late winter
