Rose of the Month – Berry Nice

This month we feature one of the new releases in the ‘My Rose Collection’ series bred by well-known rose breeder Bob Matthews of Matthews Nurseries Ltd, Whanganui.

‘Berry Nice’ produces blooms of berry-magenta shade that cover the bushy, compact growing plant. Very quick to repeat so will provide a great display of colour in the garden.  Super easy to grow, the glossy green foliage is super healthy and will thrive under a no-spray situation.

Bred from ‘My Mum’, this rose is a must for anyone looking for an easy care, colourful rose for their garden.

Available in winter 2019 from resellers of Matthews Nurseries Ltd or online at
