According to Contactmusic.com, Elton has ''rubbished reports'' he insists his dressing room is swamped in blooming roses before performing.
The star is said to have ordered a mass of specially cut flowers for his room prior to his Bournemouth show on Saturday.
As noted at this Web site and several others, florist David Shires says the singer has specifically requested the red and white roses be leaf-free, with the stalks hiding in eight inch (20 centimetre) vases. However, a spokesman for Elton says the allegations are "completely untrue".
He adds, "He doesn't even use a dressing room. He goes straight in and flies straight out again."
