For a lot of people, there’s just no other color that says ‘rose’ than velvety red. This is the red that Americans love…deep enough, velvety enough, bright enough, long-lasting enough…it’s just right. Better yet, that color comes in great clusters of ruffled flowers showing off against the backdrop of glossy dark red-green leaves with very good disease resistance.
A tall drink of a Grandiflora whose intoxicating blend of autumn colors capture the spirit of the fall festival year ‘round. Gorgeous glossy green leaves and dark red new shoots join the celebration of ever-changing yellows, oranges and reds.
Get the shovel out and prepare the best spot in your garden so you can admire the Neil Diamond rose. Who would have thought that the internationally acclaimed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer-songwriter Neil Diamond would one day have a rose bearing his name with the variety Rock & Roll as its ‘father’!
Sometimes it takes a jewelers loop to fully examine the worth of a gemstone. But this jewel of a Hybrid Tea flower is soooo big, you won’t need any help to see the impeccable beauty of its classic show form and pearly colors. Her many blooms almost look sculpted from fine porcelain.
“It’s a marvelous night for a moondance”…but the stars aren’t always up above. You see, white roses are Mother Nature’s best night lights for the garden…& Moondance provides ‘stars’ aplenty for the landscape.
A historic American milestone in red roses that’s still hard to beat. The large pointed buds and rich red well-formed blooms have a velvety quality that you must feel to believe. The powerful damask rose fragrance seduces even the hardest heart. Vigorous, tall and proud with long stems & dark green leaves. Likes consistent warm days & cool nights.
There was not much competition when it was time to crown this classy ‘lady rose’ with the title of Miss Congeniality. Everybody agreed that she’s a standout and in the beauty pageant of the rose world, she wins hands down as the most charismatic and inspirational contestant.
All it takes is one of the huge old-fashioned flowers to fill an entire room with sweet rose perfume – the classic smell that everyone expects from a rose. Loves hot weather – the hotter the better for unfurling every lovely petal. Long cutting stems are very attractively clothed the rich green clean foliage – right up to the big blossom. Vigorous & productive – it’s an easy-to-grow addition to any garden.
The spice-edged sweetness of this grandiflora is so tantalizing the French bottled it! Prolific clusters of classic bud form, high-centers of deep plum colored buds unfurl to richly purple blossoms softening to lavender chiffon. This exceptional rose also boasts dark green, disease-resistant foliage.
Quite rightly…it’s the mellowest of yellows…perfectly pure clean & clear. So if you’re ‘mad about saffron’ or lookin’ for that ‘eee..lek..trical banana’, then this is not your color. Our yellerific Hybrid Tea holds its hues until the petals fall. Lots of big blossoms come on long cutting stems from the easy-to-grow naturally vigorous plant. Deep green clean leaves. Larger flower size in cooler weather.
Big, big beautiful blooms can nearly cover this sultry siren. Her profusion of pulchritude is only matched by the surprising duration of her display. Those lovely lavender old-fashioned flowers just seem to last and last...without turning a lurid gray.
All you have to do is just stick it in the ground, give it a little water, kick back and watch it grow. The foliage is so glossy green and free from black spot that the bush looks great even without flowers. But you won’t have much of an opportunity to see just leaves ‘cause it blooms up a storm.
MONSTROUS buds & HUMUNGOUS blossoms of rich ruby red hold their durable brilliance from beginning to end. IMMENSE petals (just one can cover a child’s palm) lend a classical Hybrid Tea bud shape, slowly spiraling open to a ruffled whopper of a show-stopper.
It’s been a while since a heavenly fragrant red HT has come ’round. Lasting Love is not the bright red of Olympiad, but the powerful perfume will give Mister Lincoln a run for his money.
Lusciously lovely, delectable peachy-pink color sets apart this sister seedling of Sparkle & Shine. They may have their differences (peach pink vs. deep yellow). But, like most sisters, they share some likenesses, too.
Just before our wonderful American icon left us, she selected this exceptional rose to bear her name. Julia loved the even butter gold color & the licorice candy fragrance. Yet it wasn’t just the old-fashioned blooms that inspired the recipe. The perfectly rounded habit, super glossy leaves & great disease resistance finish off the dish. An awesome AARS award winner—a right & proper honor for a dear friend.
Cherished mostly as a tribute to the popular President, the slow-opening fragrant flowers of rich white start off with an unusual greenish cast in the bud stage. The extra full petalage stands up well to hot weather. Beloved by many. Needs warm night temps to open best.
We’re ‘livin’ it up’ with this great large-flowered clear-yellow Hybrid Tea. Despite its regional U.S. name, it actually comes from the Orard family in central France…’such a lovely place’. If you’re looking for long cutting stems, elegant big buds & glossy foliage, ‘you can find it here’…most ‘any time of year’. So give in & say ‘welcome to the Hotel California.’ Best color & flower size in cooler temps.
Huge well-formed clear white blooms are carried on this tall vigorous plant. The large dark green leaves and bronzy-red new growth are very disease resistant. Honor will yield lots of long stems suitable for cutting. Happiest on the Pacific Coast.
Immensely popular, Henry Fonda boasts distinctly deep yellow blossoms surrounded by deep green and clean foliage. This rose shows remarkable vigor and disease resistance all season.
Some might say “orange”, some “gold”, some “amber” or maybe it is even double-dipped “yellow”. However your eyeballs perceive it, we can guarantee it is bold & beautiful, especially with the kiss of red on the finish.
Here’s a yellow that stands in defiance against the climatic throes of Mother Nature. The very vigorous plant gives a nearly constant supply of shapely dark gold buds brushed with orange and deep golden yellow flowers rich with fruity fragrance.
BIG monstrous buds & blossoms of rich pink (not too gaudy nor too pale) have an inner glow of golden yellow. SUPER broad round petals lend a classical flower form, slowly spiraling open from pin-point centers to full plentiful pulchritude.
Seems that fragrance in white roses has somehow been an elusive combination. So when the wonderfully scented New Zealand produced a white color sport (mutation), it was a welcome surprise. Other than color, it’s got all the great qualities of “Mom”–great glossy foliage, beautiful flower form, etc. But best of all, it’s got that heady honeysuckle perfume that’ll make you swoon with just one sniff. Opens best when temps are consistent. Best flower size when cool.
