Introduced at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in 2007, this rose produces masses of cup-shaped, dark red blooms that fade to rosy pink. It's low growing and bushy and the foliage is dense, dark green and glossy, complementing the medium-sized blooms. It suits containers as well as borders. Named 'George Best' after the late footballer, a royalty from each rose sold will benefit the foundation set up in his name.
Looks good with:Rosa 'County of Yorkshire'
