‘Royal William’ is a handsome, hybrid tea rose. From July to September it blooms and produces large, dark red double flowers with a velvety sheen that stand out against the healthy dark green foliage.
A strong and healthy grower, this hardy rose is disease resistant and is happy placed in any aspect as long as it is in the full sun. Highly fragrant, it is a perfect rose for cutting and displaying indoors.
‘Royal William’ has been awarded the Award of Garden Merit given by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) which helps gardeners make informed choices about plants.
RHS Award of Garden Merit
The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
