Alexander MacKenzie Rose
The Alexander MacKenzie Rose, 'Rosa 'Alexander MacKenzie', exhibits cupped blooms that open from deep raspberry-red buds held in sprays of six to twelve above newly emerged leaves richly tinted with red.
As the disease resistant foliage matures, it forms a dark green backdrop for deep red blooms with the aroma of raspberries. The blooms have 40 to 50 petals.
This rose has its own root. The advantage of own root roses is that once established they are very resilient. If winter's freezing breezes kill the top growth, the rose will grow back in the spring, and the recovered rose will look the same as the one you purchased.
Use this plant in the rose garden, perennial garden or in mixed borders. Alexander MacKenzie produces excellent cut flowers.
Alexander MacKenzie is another hardy, vigorous rose in the Explorer series of roses.
