John Ford. Trial Ground Report - Trial 46
Gold Star of the South Pacific Quintessential (Somhearteen) A floribunda, bred by Rob Somerfield; Glenavon Roses. Trial No. 4946. A typical Rob bred rose, lovely plant type- tall erect, beautiful foliage - dark glossy green, good plant health and very free flowering. Colour does not overly appeal to me, cerise pink with a white reverse. The flowers were formed in clusters, both large and small and would obviously last well when picked with the large number of petals. However with all roses there are a few faults, spider mites seemed to enjoy setting up house on the leaves in the hot summers we experienced the two years of trialling.
