MARILYN MONROE

Hybrid Tea

It's not just gentlemen that prefer blondes, everyone loves this shapely Hybrid Tea.

  • Large flowers.
  • Mild fragrance.
  • Suitable for zones 5 to 9

The extraordinarily feminine creamy apricot color holds through from the long pointed buds to the big buxom open blooms. A gown of deep green leaves graces the cutting length stems. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but the super vase life and perfect flower form on this gem-of-a-rose will demand the devotion of every exhibitor. 

GROWTH HABIT

Breeding from Sunset Celebration and St. Patrick, two perfectly formed roses, created a selection with steel-like substance that holds in hot, muggy summers or in your favorite vase. The plant is strong, vigorous and sneers at disease. Some like it hot! The best apricot for hot weather.

ORIGINS

Named to honour an American actress, Marilyn Monroe.
