An eye-catching pattern of broken, bright pink and icy white stripes cover the soft petals of this unusual hybrid tea rose. Like its famous namesake, Neil Diamond is a rock star in the garden or landscape, bearing an abundance of blooms during the long growing season. The flowers are medium-large, growing to 4-5" across, with a classic tea rose form. Makes a sensational addition to a brightly colored mixed border or bed. Plant in groups along a walkway and take in the strong, heady fragrance as you stroll through the landscape on a warm summer day. Sturdy stems keep blooms upright—perfect for creating fantastic cut-flower displays all season long. Rosa cv. 'WEKdereroro' PP27272
