Rose 'Black Baccara'


Hardy Shrub

 Customer Review Rating
A sensational new hybrid tea rose! Originally this dramatic variety was only available as a cut flower, but is now available to grow in your garden. Fragrant deep maroon, almost black, flowers set this apart from any other rose. Contrasts beautifully with pure yellow roses or white lilies. Height: 150cm (60") Spread:100cm (40").Bareroot plant suppled.

Plant bareroot roses at the earliest opportunity following delivery. If planting is not possible then 'heel them in' by covering the roots with soil until conditions allow them to be planted in their permanent positions. When growing roses, choose a position in fertile well drained soil in full sun. Roses are greedy plants so add a small handful of granular fertiliser and mix some well rotted manure or compost to the soil. Dig a hole of sufficient width and depth to comfortably accommodate the bareroot plant. Position the plant in the hole so that the base of the stems sits just below soil level. Backfill the soil around the roots of the plant, firm in, and water well. Stems of climbing roses will require training against a suitable support such as a pergola, fence or wall.
Feed and water roses regularly. Deadhead faded flowers. In autumn apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. In winter, begin pruning roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce the stems to 20cm (10") above ground level. Side shoots should be reduced to two buds.

  1. Beautiful

    By Mirela Ginea 31-05-2017

    Strong, healthy rose. I bought 4 of these and planted them in January. Now several buds are about to open, deep dark red at the tip of the petal and much darker almost black at the base of the bud. They actually look better than in the picture shown here. This must be one of the most beautiful roses I have ever seen, strongly recommend it.

  2. Lovely strong plants

    By MAZ SHEPHERD 28-02-2017

    Well so far we're really pleased at the lovely shoots of strong growth that are emerging from most of my collection of ten. Am eagerly awaiting the flowers, not sure why previous reviews say they colour is not good but we will have to wait and see. I use black baccara in florestry displays so very familiar with what the colour should be when they're in half bud. I don't get to see them when they're fully out as it's the bud I buy them for but they don't seem to have an abundance of petals so are probably not that full when completley out. Even if the colour is wrong then I have every confidence in the customer service team. They have always responded very well to any concerns which is why I continue to buy from this company.
