Alinka is a variety of large-flowered rose with two-colour flowers - the petals are red around the edges and golden in the middle part of the flower, which creates a very bright, eye-catching contrast. Large, full flowers about 10 cm in diameter, composed of many petals. The shrub grows densely, it is intensely branched, covered with shining dark green leaves with reddish hue. It grows up to 120 cm in height. It blooms from June to October.
This shrub is best planted in a sunny position. It grows well in sandy-loam soil which is moderately moist, and has an optimum pH in the range of 6-6,5.
The faded flowers should always be removed from the plant. In summer, the shrub requires watering - this is best done in the morning or in the evening. Avoid soaking the leaves or flowers. In late autumn prune the plant, leaving only 10 cm of shoots. Then cover them with earth, sawdust or peat. This will protect the rose from frost. In early spring uncover the shoots and leaves so that the sun can have access to the plant. In order to prevent black spot use a suitable spray.
