True total black spot resistance is a reality now. This break-through Shrub is a forerunner of truly disease-free easy roses in our gardening future. So even the most unwilling gardener can now enjoy our national flower. Rounded, bushy and well-behaved, this sparkling gem will perk up the landscape with lots of bright cheery single flowers and loads of nearly blue-green leaves. More red in cool weather. Prune lightly.
Rose trees are not actually a class of rose. A rose plant is grafted onto a straight trunk, giving a treelike appearance, with an initial shape almost like a lollipop. The tree will take on the shaping characteristics of the rose used on the graft (climbing, floribunda, grandiflora, etc). Elegant and formal, they add a grandeur and sophistication in the landscape. Will also be gorgeous in a container. Will grow to around 4 feet tall.
