Neil Diamond

Get the shovel out and prepare the best spot in your garden so you can admire the Neil Diamond rose. Who would have thought that the internationally acclaimed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer-songwriter Neil Diamond would one day have a rose bearing his name with the variety Rock & Roll as its ‘father’! Coincidence or destiny? It is a true ‘diamond’ bloomer producing numerous sizeable flowers and attractive buds on long cutting stems. For a touch of elegance in your garden, add this gem of a rose with its novel pink and white striped flower coloration. The hit song ‘Sweet Caroline’ reaches a new level of appreciation after this rose has ignited your senses with its intense floral aroma of sweet & classic rose fragrance. The plant stands strong with its vigorous upright habit allowing you to have the flowers at nose level, ready for a sniff!
