Rose of The Week


A Hybrid Tea, in a stunning reddish orange blend.
It displays all the glitz, intensity, and glamour of its namesake.

Brilliant in a sunny garden, very favorable for cutting and displaying in a vase.
Approximately 3.5' tall, dark glossy foliage, good disease resistance. Flowers are born singly on the stem, and later in the season in small clusters.

Patented by Kordes of Germany in 1981, this popular rose is still readily available. It receives high ratings in all categories. Though not noted for its fragrance, that is the only weak aspect of any otherwise fabulous rose. This is a favorite in MrMartha's garden.
