Roses - Hybrid Musk Roses

These lovely shrubs are crosses between Rosa Moschata and various modern roses.  They are notable free from disease and are suitable for growing as specimen bushes, the shrub border or for hedging.  They all have good foliage and are smothered with their sweet, musk scented flowers which grow in clusters in June and July and they will flower intermittently until Autumn when they produce another good crop.  No pruning is necessary other than to shape them up and keep to their proper shape.  If the plants become 'leggy' in course of time one or more of their main shoots may be cut fairly hard to induce fresh growth from the base.
