Note : This variety of rose will be cut back
Rosa 'Young Lycidas' is an attractive rose that offers a pop of colour in the form of large, purplish-pink flowers which carry a strong fragrance. It’s foliage is dark green throughout the spring, summer and autumn seasons, and this provides a beautiful contrast to the vibrant flowers.
Be aware of pests such as sawflies, aphids, caterpillars and rabbits. Diseases specific to this variety include mildew and rose rust. Do not plant where other roses have grown previously.
Buying Roses from Jacksons Nurseries
At Jacksons Nurseries our roses are field grown and potted up in autumn/early spring. We sell this newly potted stock as ‘Freshly Potted’ up until they have had chance to root out usually by late spring. It is perfectly OK to plant freshly potted roses providing you water them well and remember that there will be little top growth until spring. If you do plant them straight away make sure the planting mix is prepared first, hold the rot close to the top of the hole as you tip the pot upside down and try to keep as much compost as possible from falling away.
Any stock remaining following the summer flowering season is trimmed back to help keep them tidy.
