Product Description

An aptly-named formal tea rose, the John F. Kennedy Hybrid Tea Rose offers the pinnacle of American grace and timelessness. Buds emerge in a pale green, then bloom to a pure white that sets off beautifully against glossy, finely-toothed foliage. An exemplary white rose with vigorous blooming capabilities and a sweet licorice scent, the JFK Rose transforms a bouquet with its high-centered flowers and long, arching stems. You can expect roses from spring through fall with this classic tea, and you'll enjoy the disease resistance and longevity associated with hybrids.

Regular pruning will help to maintain this hybrid tea, so be sure to prune to about half the rose's height each spring. Trim back suckers and remove any dead wood, choosing three to six healthy canes to cultivate each year. The remaining canes should be trimmed one-third in winter, leaving a bit more in colder climates. Rosa 'John F. Kennedy'
