Named to honor poet Robbie Burns, 'Tam o’ Shanter™’ as the title of a rose or hero of a poem is unique. The rose is an old English shrub rose with flowers opening along the length of the long-arching stems. Repeating blooms are rosette-shaped with about 25 petals. They are cerise in color with a soft fruity fragrance. Compound leaves are medium green. Most roses bloom with greater vigor if the spent flowers are removed.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. 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. They are also susceptible to a suite of viral and bacterial diseases as well as insect pests, so it is wise to select a robust and resistant cultivar when choosing a rose.'Tam o’ Shanter™’ is extremely vigorous and healthy.
Big, old-fashioned English roses will add charm to any garden. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and cutting gardens. 'Tam o’ Shanter™’ with its arching habit is superb in informal gardens and mixed borders.
