Horticultural Trades Association (HTA)
This gorgeous purple rose has won the Best In Show at the New Plant Awards.
Spoilt for choice with more than 100 entries to choose from, visitors at the HTA National Plant Show at Stoneleigh Park voted Rose ‘Timeless Purple’ from Whartons Roses as their favourite.
The rose, which is described as ‘intense, floral’ and with ‘very fragrant blooms,’ produces plentiful flowers that are suitable for cutting.
Bred and tested for its health, fragrance and suitability to cut for the vase and home flower decorations, it also makes a superb garden plant grown in the border or in large pots and containers – and, may we add, it ties in quite nicely with the Ultra Violet theme; Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018.
The full results of the Visitor Vote Awards are as follows:
Best in Show and Best Shrub & Climber – Rose ‘Timeless Purple’ from Whartons Roses
Best Annual – Helianthus annuus Sunbelievable Brown Eyed Girl Sunbeliv01 from Thompson & Morgan
Best Herbaceous Perennial – Digitalis Firebird from Farplants
Best Houseplant – Ficus Elastica Melany from Plant Partners
Best Tree & Conifer – Laburnum anagyroides Yellow Rocket® from Frank P Matthews Limited.
