The Morden Centennial Rose is covered in stunning lightly-scented hot pink flowers with yellow eyes from late spring to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the that turns yellow in the fall. The fruits are red hips displayed from early fall to late winter unless the birds and squirrels get them first. 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 Morden Centennial Rose will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 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 Morden Centennial Rose in front of a dark back row such as Preston Lilac, Diablo Nine Bark or Schubert Cherry will provide the contrast to bring out the Morden Blush's flowers, fall colour an rose hips.
Fascinating Foliage Facts
The flower of the Morden Centennial Rose is self-cleaning; the petals fall cleanly away from spent flowers.
