Sweet Magic (DICmagic) Dwarf cluster-flowered patio bush... one of the prettiest patio roses... 'Sweet Magic' tied with 'Royal William' on a show of hands in a contest to choose the Rose of the Year for 1987. A postal ballot was arranged so that absentees could vote, and to everyone's surprise it yielded the same result. Both roses were therefore promoted, and both have proven their worth. Dickson 1987

Since then I have seen and admired the newer so-called dwarf clustered flowered or patio roses arrive from Newtownards in Dicmagic....which I am sure will impress all who like the shorter free flowering varieties.
