Plant Guide


Rosa 'Tintinara'

Vigorous hybrid tea rose with glossy, mid green foliage. Repeat flowering throughout the season with bright orange to coral red, mildly scented flowers, 8-13 cm wide.

Registration name: Rosa 'DICuptight'. Bred by Colin Dickson (UK). 

Prefers a position in full sun and any well-draining soil with a generous amount of organic matter. Fertilise in early spring and again in early summer. Dead-head during the flowering season and prune in winter.

Fabulous colour and a strong grower. Looks great in flower borders, either as a single specimen or in groups. Rosa 'Tintinara' can become quite tall, so plant towards the back with lower growing plants in front. (The shrub used for the photograph carried lots of flowers and had reached a height of about 1.6 m). Imagine this in combination with blue-flowering plants such as Agapanthus and Ageratum houstonianum. Ideal for cutting.
