rose [Sandringham]


The Rosa Sandringham, commonly known as 'Beamolly', is a captivating plant with an elegant display. Its branches bear numerous lush green leaves that set a verdant backdrop for the blossoms. The flowers themselves are a sight to behold, characterized by their voluptuous and densely packed petals that come together to form classic rose blooms. Each flower exhibits a rich spectrum of colors that may include shades of pink, crimson, or even a gentle blush, exuding a sense of regal charm that is hard to miss. As the 'Beamolly' roses unfurl from their tight buds, the layers of petals reveal themselves, often showcasing a gradient of hues that can be lighter at the edges and deepen towards the base. The blooms tend to exude a delightful fragrance that is both sweet and sophisticated, inviting garden visitors to linger and indulge in the scent. The combination of visual beauty and olfactory pleasure makes this plant a beloved addition to any garden where flowers are appreciated for their aesthetic contributions. The plant's overall structure is designed to support the weight of the blooms, with sturdy stems that may possess thorns as is typical for rose plants.

It is the epitome of the classic rose garden charm, with the ability to evoke a sense of timeless elegance wherever it has been planted.

    The Rosa Sandringham, commonly known as the Shrub Rose, should be watered deeply and thoroughly to encourage proper root growth—water the plant to a depth of about 18 inches. It is generally recommended to provide about 1 to 2 gallons of water per week, but this can vary depending on climate conditions. During the hot summer months, regular watering is crucial, ideally in the early morning to prevent evaporation and to allow the foliage to dry out during the day. During the cooler seasons or in rainy weather, reduce the frequency to prevent overwatering. Always check the soil moisture before watering; it should be moist but not waterlogged.

  • sunLight

    Shrub Roses like the Rosa Sandringham thrive in full sunlight conditions. They ideally need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily to ensure robust growth and ample blooms. The best spot for them is in an open area that receives unfiltered daylight throughout the day, without shade from trees or buildings.

They can survive short periods of colder or warmer weather but flourish in the temperature range of 60°F to 75°F. Ensuring proper mulching can help protect the roots during temperature extremes.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning Shrub Roses, including the Rosa Sandringham, is important to maintain their shape, encourage new growth, and improve air circulation. Prune them in late winter or early spring, removing dead or diseased wood and thinning out the center to allow sunlight to penetrate the plant. It’s also beneficial to deadhead spent flowers throughout the blooming season to promote continuous flowering.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Rosa Sandringham, commonly known as the English Rose 'Beamolly', begins its life as a dormant bare-root plant or potted specimen. After planting, the rose emerges from dormancy with new shoots and leaves in spring, entering a vegetative stage where it focuses on growth and developing a strong root system. As the plant matures, usually by late spring or early summer, it enters the flowering stage, producing fragrant blooms that vary in color depending on the variety. These flowers are pollinated by insects, leading to the formation of rose hips (seed pods) in late summer or fall, which contain seeds for propagation. The rose may undergo a period of reduced activity or semi-dormancy in winter, depending on the climate. Each year the cycle repeats, with the plant gradually growing larger and producing more blooms as it reaches maturity over several years.

    • Propogation time

      Spring to early summer

    • Propogation: The Rosa Sandringham 'Beamolly' (S), commonly known as a type of rose, is typically propagated through a method called softwood cuttings. This method is most popular during the late spring to early summer when new growth is tender but mature enough to handle being cut and replanted. The process involves taking a cutting of about 5 to 6 inches in length (approximately 12.7 to 15.2 cm) from a healthy, disease-free mother plant. The bottom leaves are removed, and the cut end is often dipped in rooting hormone to stimulate root development. The cutting is then planted in a well-draining soil mix and kept under high humidity and indirect light until roots have developed, usually a matter of several weeks. It is important during this time to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged to prevent the cutting from rotting.
