There is really no other rose in the world that comes close to this extraordinary color blend. The tropical warmth comes in the form of rich sunset-like orange, while the dazzling lightning is generated by bright cream stripes. The effect is accentuated by a layer of purple smoke, creating a burnt-orange combo! Each perfectly shaped bud and flower will hold that novel color for days and the prolific and vigorous plant, which reaches mature size and full display in 3 years, will only slow down the flowering as it transitions into winter. Tropical Lightning also presents some of the glossiest leaves on a rose bush.
