Gerard Williams. ‘Satchmo’ is a marvellous floribunda, really pours its heart out for you. I always think it is so aptly named; like the man Satchmo, it has a great big heart.

Sam McGredy: …..the best seedling from crossing the two together was ‘Satchmo’, named for the late maestro Louis Armstrong. ‘Satchmo’ was and still is quite a rose. Its colour is just as bright as ‘Trumpeter’. Unfortunately, the old flower tends to blacken at the edge of the petals, and the plant inherits a non-repeat characteristic from ‘Diamant’. Satchmo, incidentally, was quite lovely about his rose. He asked for one plant for his home in Hoboken – not the usual request for a bed of roses for mother-in-law, the town square, the local hospital and heaven knows who else.

'Satchmo' One report states this is the best all round floribunda in her garden, grows very well and· produces flowers all season. She finds the petals do black at the edges under our hot sun, and spot in wet weather. There is little fragrance, heps come easily and the flowers last well when picked.
