Tried and true, this classic rose was (appropriately) bred by C. Trew in the UK in 1973. It was introduced, commercially, in the same year by Warley Rose Gardens, Ltd under the name “Admiral Rodney”. It became available in Australia in 1976.
The rose is named for Admiral Rodney, an 18th century British naval officer. It is claimed that Admiral Rodney pioneered the, then, radical and highly unorthodox tactic of ‘breaking the line’ to claim a famous victory over the French navy in 1782. This makes Admiral Rodney a perfect gift for someone who is determined, creative, unconventional and innovative.
Admiral Rodney blooms in exhibition form (petals spiralling out from a high centre). Flowers feature around 45 petals offset beautifully by large, glossy, deep green leaves.
Admiral Rodney spot flowers throughout the year, but is most prolific in summer It thrives best in full sun in the garden, or perhaps in a large pot on a sunny deck. The plant can be expected to reach a medium height of around 60cm but has been known to reach 100cm.

Supplied in Plastic Pot or Gro Bag. May be supplied as a recently potted dormant plant during Winter while into Spring and Summer will be well-established and possibly flowering. A potted rose will be settled long enough to establish that it has a good survival rate. Protect from frost and keep well watered.
will be supplied only in damp paper with sawdust, spaghnum or peat moss and as the name suggests with bare roots ready to plant and must be planted immediately after soaking for 24 hours after arrival. Bare-root roses have more risk of non-survival than a potted rose and generally one would expect 80-90% survival rates.
Water well and often with no fertilisers at planting for approx. 3 weeks until established.
