A true breeding breakthrough, this new rose offers the classic blooms of a hybrid tea rose and the disease resistance of a shrub rose. Its 4-5", double, two-toned blooms sit atop long stems that are perfect for cutting. Growing 4-5' tall with a 3-4', upright spread, it fits well into the back of mixed perennial flowerbeds. A very fragrant rose, it blooms from late spring to fall. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Bareroot. Zones 4-10. Rosa meitroni PP19970
Winter Care:Mulch heavily around the base of the plant, after the ground freezes. Remove most of the mulch in early spring, leaving only 2" (5 cm) that will retain moisture and help prevent weeds.
Flower Form:Medium to large, up to 4-5" (10-12 cm) in diameter, double and classically formed.
Foliage Type:Glossy, medium green
Pruning:Prune to maintain shape and increase branching once established. Remove any dead or damaged branches, and remove spent flowers to encourage quicker flowering and to keep the plant clean. Remove all dead from the tips of the canes in early spring
