“I’m ready for my close-up” Hannah Gordon

Not I might add our favourite Scottish actress, but the weird and slightly alien landscape at the heart of this bi-colour floribunda that I have taken a recent shine to.

A clean crystalline white with neatly cherry-red to pink flushing, picotee edge and a wavy ruffling of the petals. At the centre, a halo of pollen rich stamens and a central boss of ‘rhubarb/stem ginger’ pistils and stigma. See the RHS qualifications!

Growing 60cm tall and 45cm wide, with good repeat flowering habit, it was introduced by German breeders, Kordes in 1983.
