This month we feature another of the Showpiece series that are from the same breeder as the popular Flower Carpet® roses which were introduced in New Zealand last year.
‘Showpiece Lipstick’ is one of the Showpiece™ series from Werner and Reinhardt Noack of Germany and features large reddish pink scented blooms. Other colours available are ‘Blush’ (light pink) and ‘Berry’ (purple/pink) with more in the pipeline.
All the Showpiece series have the same attributes –easy to grow with large, double blooms, excellent disease tolerance and strong scented blooms that are self-cleaning. They are good for both the garden and pots reaching around 80cm high; the blooms are also excellent for picking and bringing inside to enjoy.
Available from garden centres around New Zealand. Photo credits: Anthony Tesselaar Plants
