Steve Beck [Roses and Friends]. ....The same sentiment applies to another large shrub rose which I imported from Peter Beales in the UK. Named for a retired weather presenter on East Anglia television in England, 'Ivor's Rose' (shrub, Beales, 2006) has surpassed all expectations. Clothed in Cherry red, double, old-style blooms along its many arching canes, it easily covers four square metres, and makes up for its lack of fragrance with its health, vigour and propensity to flower all the time. It is rapidly becoming one of the best roses in our garden.

‘Ivor’s Rose’, another gem from Peter Beales, is a wonderful, continuous-flowering, modern shrub rose, producing clusters of up to ten large, full, deep red pink blooms on arching stems. The old-fashioned style flowers have a light fragrance. The plant is very vigorous, strong and healthy, making a wonderful cottage garden specimen. The foliage is dark green, glossy and disease-resistant. In our garden it has thrived on neglect, developing into a huge, untamed shrub. A marvellous new variety. 2m x 3.5m
