"Brindabella BouquetTM" is a new release floribunda rose which loves the heat. It flowers continually in flushes every 7 weeks. It has well formed flowers with fluted petals that start white with pink or champagne centres and age to purest clear white.

THIS ROSE HAS STRONG, SWEET PERFUME (genuinely).

The bushy plant grows 1m tall and wide and has good dark green foliage. Looks great in groups of 3 or more or as a hedge. Very suitable for pots or as a standard due to it's rounded, compact shape.

 

 

A ROSE WITH NO BLACKSPOT.

All our trials over 4 years show us that "BrindabellaBouquetTM" is completely resistant to black spot.

This picture shows a "Seduction R" standard with severe blackspot and "Brindabella Bouquet" bushes under it completely clean of disease. We have observed this same result season long for the past 3 years, both at our gardens in Toowoomba and also at a trail sites in Silvan Vic., Grafton NSW, Nambour and New Farm Park in Brisbane.

The genetic resistance has been introduced from Rosa davidii elongata

 

 

 

This is what Holly Forsyth-Kerr, garden writer for The Weekend Australian newspaper wrote recently:

Late last year I received a pair of 'Brindabella Bouquet' roses, with the promise that they would thrive in the humidity experienced in warm temperate and subtropical climates. Six months later it is clear that this was not an empty boast. They are flowering again in a mass of very double, very white blooms with a charming green eye and delicious spicy scent. The almost thornless bushes are covered in the sweetest, elongated white buds that are encased in an elegant calyx.

'Brindabella Bouquet', which grows to about 1m in height, flowers in seven-week cycles. This rose makes a great hedge, or a backbone plant, if repeated through a garden bed. www.brindabella-gardens.com.au.
