Medium red Hybrid Tea.

Terry’s Note: A bit of a stingy bloomer, it does well in the fall.

MONSTROUS buds & HUMUNGOUS blossoms of rich ruby red hold their durable brilliance from beginning to end. IMMENSE petals (just one can cover a child’s palm) lend a classical Hybrid Tea bud shape, slowly spiraling open to a ruffled WHOPPER of a show-stopper. LARGE lettuce-like leaves of an unusual reddened green color gracefully enrobe the long cutting stems  in perfect proportion to the flower. Who needs a bouquet??? It only takes one PRODIGIOUS posy to fill a vase.

Oprah Winfrey was involved in the multi-year evaluation and final selection of the ‘Legends’ rose. Chosen to pay tribute to the wonderful women honored during Oprah’s Legends Weekend.
