Paddy Stephens, a hybrid tea rose, was bred by Sam McGredy in New Zealand, named after New Zealand rosarian Paddy Stephens. A vigorous, free-flowering hybrid tea rose with strong upright growth, lush, glossy dark green foliage and orange-salmon, slightly fragrant flowers. Prefers a position in full sun and any well-drained soil with a generous amount of organic matter. Fertilise with rose fertiliser. Dead-head during the flowering season and prune in winter. Good disease resistance. Gorgeous rose with subtly fragrant flowers in flushes from spring to autumn. Suitable for containers. Excellent for cutting.
Roses prefer a soil which has good water holding capacity but is never waterlogged. A clay loam is ideal but roses will grow in most soils. Improve light soils by digging in plenty of compost and prepare the ground by deep digging prior to planting.
Roses love lots of sun but they will be fine with some afternoon shade. Five hours of sunlight is adequate. Most roses won’t do well in a very windy position but they do need good ventilation. An overcrowded situation makes them more susceptible to disease.
