A remarkable Hybrid Tea rose that is just waiting to impress in any garden. The ‘Dr. Susan Michaelis’ rose exudes magnificence and produces strong and upright plants that demonstrate plenty of resilience.
Dark green glossy foliage forms as a base for high pointed buds, which open to reveal blooms of more than 40 petals in a deep cerise pink shade, with flecks of silvery white. Even as the flowers start to fade, they remain vibrant, as the cerise colouring deepens to purple.
Very few thorns grow on the stems of ‘Dr. Susan Michaelis’, making it an excellent candidate for cut flowers. A subtle, yet spicy perfume is released by the blooming rose, which only intensifies on warm summer evenings.
This rose is named after former airline pilot Dr. Susan Michaelis, who set up the ‘Lobular Moon Shot Project’ to raise awareness of Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer, which she was diagnosed with in 2013. £2.50 from the sale of each Dr. Susan Michaelis Rose will be paid to The Institute of Cancer Research, London (ICR) to support their lobular breast cancer (ILC) research fund.
Supplied freshly in a 3L pot, ready to be planted out. Please note at certain times of the year this variety may be supplied in a 4L pot.
We always endeavour to provide beautifully formed plants; however, our roses will naturally start to lose their leaves from October to prepare for the colder months. Do not worry though, as they will flourish once again with leaves and buds in the spring.
Please, make sure you consider the season when purchasing our remarkable roses for yourself or loved ones.
