Late Mid Season
$30.00 (excl. tax)
A tremendously handsome variety, versatile and well deserving of a place in the perennial border with its terrific landscape qualities or in the vase with its equally compelling cut flower performance. Shawnee Chief’s large flowers range from an unfading ruby red to a magenta or crimson red depending on the growing conditions, and are of a well groomed, rose-double form with a globular, high profile. Its outermost petals are large and broad and taper off in size as they approach the centre. Stems are sturdy, only benefitting from assistance during rain; plants show great vigor; bloom is profuse; growth is strong. A truly fantastic landscape plant in many rights. Cut flowers have an excellent vase life and handle cold storage well. Side buds present that extend the blooming period. One of the best choices for plants in this colour range.
