Yesterday & Red Yesterday  A versatile and attractive compact shrub rose that was introduced by Harkness in the UK in 1973. It is still around today and we have been able to source propagation material. We are delighted to be able to re-introduce it as it posseses remarkable traits. It is continuous and repeat owering. The long lasting tiny rose red to lavender-pink, semi-double blooms are borne in sprays on long stems. The shiny leaves are very resistant to black spot. ‘Red Yesteday’ is a much darker, red sport of ‘Yesterday’ pictured above.
