The "Quaker Star" Rose


‘Quaker Star’, a rose which was bred at the request of a Friend from Richill Meeting, Alan Pearson, can be found in the garden at South Belfast Quaker Meeting. It is a Hybrid Tea rose which produces full orange flowers with a silver reverse and glossy, mid-green leaves. Repeat blooms through summer and fall. In general, roses are a large group of flowering shrubs, most with showy flowers that are single-petalled to fully double-petalled. Leaves are typically medium to dark green, glossy and ovate, with finely toothed edges. Vary in size from 1/2 inch to 6 inches, five petals to more than 30, and in nearly every colour. Often the flowers are very fragrant. Most varieties grow on long canes that sometimes climb. Unfortunately, this favourite plant is quite susceptible to a variety of diseases and pests, many of which can be controlled with good cultural practices.
