The Cuthbert Grant Rose is blanketed in stunning fragrant dark red flowers at the ends of the stems from late spring to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the season that turns yellow in fall. Neither the fruit or the brown thorny bark is ornamentally significant.
Cuthbert Grant Rose is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a moderate maintenance rose that will require regular care and upkeep. Removing the spent roses (dead-heading) before they form rose hips will ensure continued reblooming throughout the summer. Shaping the bush is best accomplished in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.
The Cuthbert Grant Rose will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
This rose should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. Placing the Cuthbert Grant Rose in front of a dark back row such as Preston Lilac, Diablo Nine Bark or Cotoneaster will provide the contrast to bring out the Morden Blush's flowers, fall colour an rose hips.
