Shrub rose plant named ' FRYyeoman'
Gareth Fryer, Knutsford Cheshire, Great Britian
... A new variety of Shrub rose suitable for garden decoration, having large clusters of flowers of pastel pink coloration... Parentage: Amruda x HOLfairy... about 10 to about 15 petals... medium small flowers (about 4.4 to about 5 cms. in diameter) of pastel pink... Outdoors, the plant blooms very abundantly and nearly continuously during the growing season. The flowers have a very slight tea fragrance... On the spent bloom, the petals drop off cleanly... [cut flowers]: generally last about three to four or more days... Hips have not been noted on this variety when grown in Upland, California...
In Southern California, this Shrub Rose repeats very well if deadheaded.
It appears to be immune to mildew, rust, cercospora, anthracnose and downy mildew.
It even has a nice vase life, if cut fairly tight.
A terrific rose!
