An exceptional and beautiful variety of Floribunda Rose, 'Hot Chocolate' provides uniquely coloured buds of rusty orange, opening to reveal warm velvety smoked chocolate brown blossoms that contrast beautifully against the dark glossy deciduous foliage. Winner of both the Rose of the Year 2006 and the distinguished Award of Garden Merit this Floribunda variety rates high with good disease resistance and repeat flowering habit. Floribunda Roses are an excellent choice for the garden as they will bear colourful blooms in large clusters on each stem throughout the summer months, flowering June to September. They are a great addition to the front of garden borders or patio containers for those with smaller gardens where their sweet fragrance can be fully appreciated. These wonderful flowers can also be cut and used within flower arrangements to be enjoyed within the home. We recommend planting in sunny locations in fertile, well-drained soil where they will flourish and reach a mature height of one metre. Top-quality two-year-old bare rooted plants are supplied.

Pruning

Floribunda roses can be pruned at the end of march/early April.

It is best to plant roses in winter or early spring, provided there is little frost. To plant, dig a hole large enough to take the roots when fully outspread. Distribute the roots evenly around the hole and put in a little fine soil to which has been added a small amount of bonemeal. Fill in a further 5cm of ordinary soil over the roots and tread in firmly. Generally speaking the depth of planting roses will vary between 10-20cm, but examination of the plants should let you know quite clearly the depth to plant.
It is vital that roses are planted firmly, to ensure that winds will not damage or disrupt the roots. Apply a balanced fertiliser every 3-4 weeks in the spring/summer and it is also recommended that you apply a mulch in the winter for protection. Can be pruned back to remove any dead wood or growth.
