You'd think there's nothing more classic than a rose, but it is still making headlines, thanks to the extraordinary, game–changing new varieties top breeders are introducing. We'l give you a first look at three of the most exciting new 2020 releases from renowned breeders Christian Bedard and Tom Carruth in this collection.
Fun in the Sun has the flower form of a true English–style rose—a look that's gaining more and more popularity in the US garden. This floribunda blooms in clusters of about 5–6, with 60–85 petals per blossom. They feature a strong, tantalizing scent—mostly fruity with a delicate touch of spice to make it dynamic. The brilliant color refuses to fade. As a new, modern variety, it performs with excellent disease resistance. Rosa cv. WEKpupmobalip PPAF
Painted Porcelain's graceful blooms enchant with the cream–colored reverse on each soft pink petal. You can expect everything we love about classic hybrid tea roses with this one, specifically the ideal form for bouquets and arrangements, as one perfect flower blooms per strong, straight stem. They're delicately fragrant, for a sophisticated single–variety bouquet. Rosa cv. 'WEKmostadabre' PPAF
Perfume Factory's blooms are bound to be a hit for an obvious reason. This new variety is a fragrance powerhouse. From late spring to fall, the fruity, spicy scent will add another dimension to your garden design. Also, it's a hybrid tea, which is preferred for cut–flowers with one petal–packed bloom per strong, straight stem, so be sure to enjoy this beauty indoors, too. Rosa cv. 'WEKnewibpusbi' PPAF
