My Girl

My Girl.Rose. FZ1000

My dear, have you heard?
Rose was out on the town
Slept till the rising sun

My Girl, a great all round rose that deserves to be more widely grown in New Zealand.

While classified as a Hybrid Tea and has the large blooms typical of this type of rose, they are flat and come in clusters much like a floribunda. The blooms open rose pink and by the time they drop, they have a lavender tinge.

The plant is low growing and bushy making it ideal for even the smallest of gardens. Very healthy as well so a great all round rose – probably its best attribute is its consistency. There is even a hint of fragrance to please those lovers of fragrant roses .

Bred by Sam McGredy from Northland x Big Purple, My Girl is readily obtainable from garden centres and specialist rose nurseries around New Zealand. It was selected by a panel of school children as their favourite rose at the New Zealand Rose of the Year trials in 2009. ~ Bernard
