Rosa 'Cocktail' (Shrub Rose) - Flowering continuously through summer, this bright rose has clusters of single golden-eyed cherry-red flowers that age so the red intensifies and the yellow fades to cream. The character of the plant is that of an upright shrub, 6 feet tall by 4 ft. wide, with thorny stems and numerous green, deeply serrated leaves. It can be used as a hedging rose or can also be used as a stiff climber growing to 8 ft. or more supported by a fence or other plants. This tough disease resistant rose was once more common in gardens and is ready to make a comeback. A great old rose but we finally have moved on and no longer sell it.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  Rosa 'Cocktail'.
