In my garden: I cannot get enough of Westerland, this rose has a certain sunny and uplifting quality to it. The flowers change colour as they mature – from orange to apricot to warm pink – but unlike on some other roses where warm tones clash with cold, on Westerland it all looks perfectly balanced and beautiful. The blooms are large an heavy, it is best to give them some support.
