The latest must-have rose for your garden has to be the bright orange Nelson Mandela rose launched last year for the centenary celebrations of the iconic man’s life.
The ‘Nelson Mandela’ is a fiery orange-red floribunda Eco Chic rose. It is a tall rose that matures into a stately bush, covered with shiny, dark-green foliage that shows up the large semi-double blooms. Initiated by Keith Kirsten in consultation with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, proceeds from the sale of the rose will be donated to the Foundation
It can stand on its own as a focal point in a garden and is ideal for planting as a screen or to hide an unattractive wall or fence.
Visit The Autumn Garden Show in Midrand, Johannesburg from the 5-7 April to get this rose and others for sale and check out the beautiful rose garden at The Herb Farm for inspiration. Visit www.gardenshow.co.za for more info and see how you can book tickets.
