Bright crimson, deeply cupped, double flowers are lightly fragrant. As with so many of the David Austin Roses, Tess has the charming form and fragrance of an heirloom, but has the long blooming perdiod of modern hybrids, from June to September. Robust plants are bushy and spreading. May be grown as a shrub, about 4ft tall and 3 1/2 feet wide, or trained as a short climber, 6 to 8 ft tall. Grafted. (Ausmove)
Tip: We use Organic Gem® as a foliar feed on Rose bushes in our trial garden and find plants are healthier and perform better throughout the season.
