Rosa 'Wedding Garland'

Rose (Eng.), Roos (Afr.)

1/3

A climber which grows quickly to form a natural garland with a steady & continuous supply of strongly fragrant, double, apricot fading to white blooms. Free standing it will grow to 2.5m high before it starts garlanding. It has inherited ‘Iceberg’s’ ability to sprout out of the mature wood with flowering side stems. Fan out or tie main stems horizontally on fence, wall, arch or pergola.

Harvesting

Pick flowers from Spring through Summer and into Autumn. Pick rose petals early in the morning by holding the rose stem with one hand, gathering the petals together and pulling them off. For cut flowers, it is best to harvest in the early mornings before the heat of the day. Use sharp, clean secateurs and cut the stems at an angle just above an active bud.

Propagation

Cuttings
Take hardwood cuttings from firm young stems with some leaves in Autumn. Make 1-2.5 cm vertical slits through the bark near the base. Place in pots of moist sand or potting soil.
Suckers
Budding in summer. For budding, excise a single vegetative bud on a stem and attach it to the stem of the rootstock.

Special features

Pot plant
Use a deep pot with sufficient drainage, provide a trellis to support the plant.

Uses

Edible
Rose hips are occasionally made into jam, jelly, marmalade, and soup or are brewed for tea, primarily for their high vitamin C content. They are also pressed and filtered to make rose hip syrup. Rose water has a very distinctive flavour and is used heavily in Middle Eastern, Persian, and South Asian cuisine, especially in sweets such as barfi, baklava, halva, gulab jamun, gumdrops, kanafeh, nougat, and Turkish delight. Rose petals or flower buds are sometimes used to flavour ordinary tea, or combined with other herbs to make herbal teas.

Companion plants

Members of the onion family such as chives, ornamental alliums, and edible onions, are rumored to increase the perfume of roses, ward off aphids, and prevent black spot. Scented geraniums (Pelargonium), rue (Ruta), feverfew (T anacetum), parsley (Petroselinum), and thyme (Thymus) all may help ward off Japanese beetles and aphids. Marigolds (Tagetes) may also repel pests and encourage growth. Try ornamental and culinary sage (Salvia), anise-hyssop (Agastache), Russian-sage (Perovskia), lavender (Lavandula), yarrow (Achillea), oregano (Origanum), catmint (Nepeta) and calamint (Calamintha). Oddly enough, tomatoes allegedly prevent black spot, but not many people will be inclined to combine roses and tomatoes. Lavender (Lavandula) and catmint (Nepeta) are good at keeping rabbits away. Yarrow (Achillea) may attract ladybugs who in turn feed on aphids. Remember to plant rose companions at least 30 cm away from your roses so that you do not disturb their roots.
