Simply put, this shrub creates lots of beautiful roses. The medium red, fully double, 1½–2" blooms are borne in many small clusters. Despite their size, the flowers average more than 45 petals, giving them the look of tiny, fluffy pom-poms. And their scent? It ranges from a hint of tea to somewhat fruity. The plant's habit is compact and rounded, making it ideal for a small spot in the landscape or a decorative pot. This rose has very good disease resistance and performs well in most areas of the U.S. Note: A portion of the sale of each Children's Hope rose is donated to the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation. Its mission is to improve the treatment, quality of life and long-term outlook of children with brain or spinal cord tumors. Rosa Children's Hope® cv. WEKswegobab PPA
