Jane McGrath - 90cm Standard
(Rockliz) - This attractive, quartered Old English style floribunda is Australian bred for Australian conditions by breeders Ron & Barbara Inverarity. The lightly scented small blooms are produced in clusters on slightly arching canes and last well in the vase. Trials have proven its hardiness in drought conditions, along with a good resistance to black spot.
Please note this plant can sometimes have a more spreading habit in the hotter states.
A donation of $1.00 is made to the McGrath Foundation from the sale of each plant. This money raised goes towards helping the Foundation's important work which includes placing breast care nurses in rural and regional Australia. Jane had seen this rose and was looking forward to it being released in her name before she passed away in June 2008.
The support of a McGrath Breast Care Nurse is available right across Australia - for free. No matter whether you're in the private or public health system, it's as simple as checking their website and finding the nurse nearest to you. For further information visit McGrath Foundation.
