This is a particularly robust and healthy rose, producing long arching branches that flower very freely. The flower buds are blush pink at first, later opening to reveal flowers of blush touched with apricot. The outer petals are almost white with a hint of blush – the light reflecting among the petals to enhance the whole effect. The blooms have a perfect rosette shape and are distinctly quartered. They have a lovely, fresh, medium-strong fragrance. The foliage is quite small for an English Rose, very clean looking and remarkably free from disease.
‘Wildeve’ is a highly versatile variety, with many of the features of a good ground cover rose, combined with all the quality of flower of an English Rose. Forming a bushy, mounding shrub, it is an ideal choice for a prime position in the border and will look superb grown in a large pot or container. It can also be used to create a spectacular hedge or be trained against a short fence, where its blooms are sure to be admired.
