Here at Famous Roses, we love a good story as much as we love the roses we host.
It seems to us that the Eddy Mitchell is the most rock’n’roll of all Meilland Richardier roses.
The story goes that Eddy Mitchell wanted to design a black rose that would remind him of the times he was part of the "Chaussettes Noires" (The Black Socks). But the House of Meilland took it a step further and added a shade of gold. What resulted was completely innovative: a dark-red petal verging on black with a gold-yellow reverse.
The Eddy Mitchel is a continuous flowering rose and strong dark-green foliage, very resistant to diseases. The flowers are 10cm in diameter and have about 27petals. It can reach adult heights of 60-80cm.
Recommended for cut flowers in vase and floral arrangements. The cut flower has a resistance of about 7-10 days.
Quality 1+ (premium) Year 2 bushes, very sturdy, grafted on the best rootstock in the world right now, which gives the roses vigour and great resistance over time.
