Often known as Pink Cherokee, the old rose ‘Anemone’ was hybridized by J. Schmidt of Germany in 1895. It is thought to be a complex hybrid between the species Rosa laevigata, the single flowered Cherokee rose and an unknown tea rose. This is a lovely vigorous shrubby rose that will climb if trained. It bears fragrant single large lilac-pink blooms repeatedly if the spent flowers are removed regularly. Shiny medium green evergreen leaves are held on thorny canes and open plants.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. This cultivar is some tolerant of shade, cold and poor soils. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. In fact, there are many common pests and diseases that can harm them. Fortunately, cultivars like ‘Anemone’ are bred to be disease resistant.
Shrub roses are a landscape must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and large landscapes. Enjoy these carefree beauties massed in a sweep or planted singly as accent plants.
