ROSE OF THE YEAR 2018
Lightly scented, cherry red, double-petalled blooms borne in large clusters on arching stems, are displayed against glossy dark green foliage. Unusually, the outer petals reveal violet overtones. Flowering prolifically all season long, this rose has shown outstanding health and vigour in rose trials around the country. To add to its Rose of the Year 2018 title, it has also been awarded the British Association of Rose Breeders' Gold Standard and The Royal National Rose Society's Gold Medal. Lovestruck is bred by Colin Dickson of Dickson Nurseries, Northern Ireland.
