Description

If Roses are famous for anything it is their scent. Spicy, sweet or fruity; Perfect Perfume roses are our specialist range of roses carefully bred, grown and curated into a selection chosen to fill the garden with fragrance and visual interest from June through to late Summer. The Bliss Rose takes its place as a valued member of the prestigious rose collection and encapsulates both beauty and fragrance in one package. The creamy peachy-pink blooms of Bliss Rose are reminiscent of the softest shades found in the heart of a romantic sunset. Each fully double cupped bloom unfolds like a delicate poem, creating a visually captivating experience. Complementing the blossoms is the light green foliage of the Bliss Rose. These glossy serrated leaves create a tasteful backdrop, adding to the overall visual appeal of this remarkable rose. The Bliss Rose carries a sweet, fruity fragrance, like a scented love letter in the air. This aromatic scent evokes the essence of romance and offers a sensory journey that lingers, enveloping your garden with its fragrance that is stronger on hot and sunny days. The Bliss Rose is celebrated for its bushy and vigorous growth, making it an ideal choice for garden beds and borders. If you're looking to beautify trellises, walls, arbors, obelisks, pillars or fences, Bliss rose is for you. Its moderate size ensures it fits seamlessly into various gardens. It also thrives in containers, allowing you to add a touch of romance to your patio or balcony.

Planting Conditions

Planting the Bliss Rose involves creating the perfect conditions to ensure its lasting beauty and fragrance. Select a well-drained, loamy soil that provides excellent moisture retention without water-logging. This rose variety thrives in locations that receive a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight daily, ensuring vibrant growth and blooming. When planting, dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, ensuring that the graft union is at ground level, allowing for proper root development and stability. Ensuring that the graft union (i.e. where the cultivar joins the rootstock and the point from which the branches originate) is at soil level (not below as this is reported to increase the risk of rose dieback). Spacing is essential, with individual roses typically needing 2 to 3 feet of separation. Applying a layer of organic compost around the base helps regulate soil temperature, reduce weed growth, and retain moisture. By adhering to these planting conditions, you'll provide the perfect environment for the Bliss Rose to thrive.

Watering & Feeding

Watering and feeding Rose Bliss is vital for its vitality and ability to showcase its stunning features. When it comes to watering, strive for consistent moisture in the soil. Deep watering is essential, ensuring the roots are thoroughly saturated, particularly during hot or dry periods. Morning watering is advisable to allow the foliage to dry during the day, reducing the risk of fungal diseases. To prevent potential issues, avoid overhead watering and opt for methods like soaker hoses to deliver water directly to the base of the plant. Feeding is equally important and Rose Bliss can be fertilised using a slow release Rose fertiliser. Typically, two feedings in Spring and late Spring or early Summer are beneficial. However, take care not to over-fertilise with excessive nitrogen, as this can lead to vigorous foliage growth at the expense of blooms.

General Care

General care for Rose Bliss is vital to ensure its health and showcase its exquisite beauty. Regular pruning, typically during the dormant season in late Winter or early Spring, involves the removal of dead or diseased branches, shaping the plant, and stimulating fresh growth and continuous blooming. Practicing deadheading throughout the growing season by removing spent blossoms encourages new flower production. Vigilance against common rose pests, such as aphids and spider mites, is essential, with prompt action through appropriate remedies if needed. Feeding the rose is crucial, employing a slow release Rose fertiliser for the Bliss Rose or similar varieties, following recommended application rates and schedules.
