Comments George Arends is one of the later hybrid perpetuals and it inherits their rather profound stick-like nature. It tends to make long canes with single flowers at their ends. And it is not especially quick to set new canes. It is, therefore, possible to have a plant produce a single flower in a season. Maybe for several seasons in a row. Despite the fact that it can be an awkward plant, it can be worthy of a space in a garden since there is a peculiar, subtle charm to the flowers of George Arends. Furthermore, this rose will survive and bloom in impoverished, dry clay - conditions that would kill most more modern HTs in a season. Flower production might be improved if given perfect soil, and if the canes are trained horizontally by tying to a low fence or by pegging.
