Can anyone recommend a good specimen rose....preferably no taller than 1m high, single or semi double flowers, coral/apricot coloured.
Ive looked at Flower carpet coral and it looks good but need some other suggestions. Must be available in the UK and pretty hardy. Scent would be a bonus



Gertrude Jeckyll but it's pink and the perfume is stunning

If you like yellow Golden Showers it has a slight perfume but a pretty rose.

Hi, how about R anne harkness("Harkaramel"), floribunda, urn shaped, double, apricot yellow flowers to 3"across borne freely from summer to autumn, or R "apricot nectar", floribunda, rounded fully double, scented, apricot to apricot pink flowers 4" across in tight clusters from summer to autumn.
First 1 height 4ft spread 24", second 1 height 32" spread 26", Derek.

Its hard to get one so small. Most are over 3 ft. Our latest was Retirement Rose!! It was 2 ft high for ages & took off to 7 ft!!!
