Rose of the Month – Amore® Espresso

Amore Espresso

Amore EspressoThis month we feature a welcome addition to the range of brown toned roses available in New Zealand.

‘Amore® Expresso’ is a good garden rose with clusters of brown flowers, opening to reveal golden yellow stamens. A spicy clove scent of moderate strength is another addition to this medium growing variety. Perhaps the best feature of this rose is its fantastic health with the dark glossy foliage looking great well into the autumn months. 

Bred by Speks of Holland, this is a great variety if you are wanting something a bit different in your garden.  Available from Amore Roses.
