An exceptionally robust rose, the Roald Dahl was so named to mark the centenary of the writer’s birth. It features lovely orange buds that open into medium-sized, cupped, apricot rosettes. Good disease resistance means the deep green foliage sets a dependable backdrop for the repeat blooming throughout the summer.  The blooms have a petal count of 55 and a medium fruity tea scent. 

The Roald Dahl Rose is nearly thorn-free, making it easy to handle and an excellent candidate for cut flowers. Cultivate the Roald Dahl as a specimen plant ringed by annuals or long-blooming perennials to create a stunning summer display. Another option: use several roses to create a low hedge or border. The Roald Dahl even performs well in a sufficiently large container!

Roald Dahl Rose Care

The Roald Dahl Rose prefers a site with full sunlight but can handle a slightly shady location. Roses can grow well in a variety of soil types as long as the site offers good drainage and plenty of organic matter. Work compost into a site prior to planting if the soil has a high clay or sand content. A soil pH around 6.5 keeps nutrients available to the shrub. Feed the Roald Dahl annually with a slow-release, organic fertilizer labeled for roses. 

Snip off spent flowers during the growing season to keep the plant tidy. In late winter, remove the oldest, least productive canes and any canes that look weak or spindly. The general rule of thumb is to remove no more than about one-third of the overall growth. 

Roald Dahl Rose Spacing

The Roald Dahl Rose grows 4 to 5 feet tall with a similar spread, so space this shrub 3 to 4 feet apart as a hedge or give it a bit more space as a standalone specimen. If growing this rose in a container, opt for one that holds 8 to 15 gallons with a 15- to 20-inch diameter.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
