DETAILED DESCRIPTION

One of the most instantly recognizable Hybrid Teas with creamy white blooms blushed with strawberry red; no two flowers exactly the same. Double Delight fulfills the two highest demands of a rose—an eye-catching color combo and fantastic nose-pleasing fragrance. The prolific bush provides lots of creamy pointed buds that blush red with the rays of the sun. Deep green leaves. Best color/flower size in warm days & cool nights.

GROWTH HABIT

Beautiful double blooms with an eye-catching color combination and fantastic fragrance. The large, somewhat informal, old-fashioned, 24-30 petals are of rich, creamy white edged strawberry red. The vigorous shrub grows to 4-feet high and 3-feet wide, offering good branching and covering itself in disease-resistant semi-glossy, dark green leaves. Its size makes it compact enough for patio containers.

AWARDS

Double Delight won All-American Rose Selections honors in 1977.
