Decisions, decisions – which of these twelve new roses will you add to your garden this year? All will be available in the spring from Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle:
Popcorn Drift® is the newest addition to the Drift® groundcover series. It starts yellow and then fades to a cream white. Drift® Roses have many of the same great characteristics as The Knock Out® Family of Roses, but are much smaller in habit.
Francis Meilland™ is the 2013 AARS winner. This tall Hybrid Tea rose with a very large bloom, good exhibition form and strong fragrance is a multiple award winner in Europe. It is named to commemorate the centenary of Francis Meilland’s birth and to honor of our historic relationship with Meilland International, the breeder behind the historic Peace rose and our most recent series Drift.
Look-A-Likes® Hydrangealicious is a unique new hybrid shrub rose with dense flower clusters of small red blooms with a white eye that almost look like a Hydrangea! Like Drift® Roses, this variety is low-growing and easy to maintain.
The Eyeconic® series of Hulthemia roses is an exciting addition to our lineup of roses. This year we are introducing two new varieties — Eyeconic® Pomegranate Lemonade and Eyeconic® Melon Lemonade. This series grows best in the Western United States. Eyeconic Pomegranate Lemonade is a diminutive rose with large deep pink flowers and terrific novelty. All the varieties in this series have unique coloring with the characteristic red Hulthemia blotch in the center.
Cinnamon Dolce™ has brick red petals dusted with pink spots and is very fragrant. This variety needs the dry heat of the West to thrive.
Raspberry Cream Twirl™ is the first striped climber to have a true modern rose exhibition-type flower.
Big Momma™ is a big, pink, very fragrant Hybrid Tea that is great for cutting.
Cloud 10™ is a pure white climbing rose that has a very full flower similar to the English roses. It is hardy to zone 6 (in zone 5 it would be more like a large shrub). It will do great everywhere, but especially in the South and all areas troubled with black spot.
Dark Night™ is a new, well-tested novel rose for the West Coast. The color is dark velvet red, almost black, with a cream yellow reverse. The flower form is classic with a high centered bud and a cuplike opening.
Look-A-Likes® Phloxy Baby is a Polyantha Hybrid from the hybridizer of The Knock Out® Rose. It displays extremely good disease resistance and is more upright than most Polyantha roses. It would be perfect for use as a hedge. It attracts bees and is hardy to zone 5.
Tequila Gold™ is a mutation of Tequila™, one of our most popular new landscape roses. Like its parent, it produces a symphony of bright color nonstop through the season. The bright golden color will shine as a bright spot in any modern garden. Can be grown as a specimen or a hedge for stronger effect. Great for landscaping in dry hot climates, and also with good performance on the East Coast. One of the very few good yellow landscape roses.
