Rosa 'Champagne Moment'

In 2012 I re-created the North facing front garden, got rid of a very old privet hedge, dug a completely new bed beside my new low wall and railings and have planted things that I hope will manage with light but very little direct sunlight. This rose is one of three planted that can cope with shade - I hope. They are tall standards ie grafted at 100cms so they will flower above the railings. R. Champagne Moment was rose of the year in 2006 and it has surpised me and all the neighbours by being fantastic in 2013 - its first year! I've realised that, because they are higher up, they get more sun than the lower plants, even though they are North facing. In summer they are getting about 2-3 hours of sun a day which is amazing and perfect.

This rose is amongst two Rosa 'Cream Abundance' which are very red/pink for a rose called cream anything but is fantsatic too. When I am out watering I am constantly stopped by locals thanking me for getting rid of the hedge and adding flowers and scent to their walk down the road. Very happy making!
