Rose ‘Sweet Spot® Calypso’ is not a Hybrid Tea, or floribunda, climber, or any other type you may be familiar with. It is so unique it is set to change the way roses are used in UK gardens.
Coined the Decorator Rose, ‘Sweet Spot® Calypso’ has been developed to offer distinct flower appearance and colouring that changes as the blooms age. Combine this with a habit ideal for ground cover, plus a blanket of repeat, non-stop blooms from June through to October and you have something truly unique to show off in your garden.
Not only do the ever-changing colours add a strong design element to the garden, with each bloom adding a different stroke of vibrant colour to beds, borders, patios and containers, this rose also has strong disease resistance, drought tolerance and lush green foliage. While it may spread out to fully fill border soils, it remains short, reaching just 60cm (24in) in height.
Our new product development manager Michael Perry said: “’Calypso’ will change the way we think about roses in the garden. With such dense flowering it’s like taking a paintbrush to your borders! That’s why it’s being called the ‘Decorator Rose'”.
