As “America’s Best Rose Garden”, Rose Hybridizers like to feature their roses in the garden. A new arrival this year is “Pretty Lady Rose”, an introduction by Weeks Roses as part of their “Downton Abbey” series. We grew it as a test rose for two years, and it is quite striking. 50 of these are now featured in a prominent bed. This rose will be available to teh public in 2016. Here is their description:
As vibrant as her namesake, our “Lady Rose” has a high petal count that creates big, showy, ruffled blooms that resemble a flapper’s dress. Strong-willed dark pink color stays true! Plant this sweetly fragrant variety in a container or near the patio to enjoy its beauty and perfume.
