This month we feature a rose from the new category of Decorator Roses which are available in New Zealand for the first time.
‘Sweetspot® Calypso’ is an eyecatching rose with masses of single blooms of pinkish red and yellow with a pink/red spot in the centre of each petal. The blooms have a moderate scent and are produced freely from mid-spring until late autumn. A compact growing plant to 60cm x 60cm with dark green foliage, it is ideal for growing in gardens as well as pots and containers. To perform at its best, it does require a regular spray program
Bred by Illsink of Holland, this novel introduction is a great new rose to decorate your garden.
