Mamma Mia, is an excellently formed Hybrid Tea rose bearing strong blooms of a red/orange with pink on the tips of the petal. This rose has a superb fragrance and excellent disease resistance. Glossy green foliage. Repeat flowers. Grows to 90cm in height and 70cm in spread.
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.
