Rose of the Month For July and August, 2007
by Barbara Picarelli

I love orange roses, so I HAD to have this one, once I saw the photo in the brochure. It did not disappoint, and this is a photo of the first bloom. The rose is a good 5-6 inches across, and opens to a perfect point. I’m sure if I were an exhibitor it would be a Queen!

While I just discovered it, it has been around for awhile and was originally hybridized in 1984 by Jack Christensen of Armstrong Nursery. It has a nice list of parentage including ‘Camelot’, ‘First Prize’, ‘Typhoo Tea’, and ‘Lolita’. While my rose is mostly orange, it does have shading of salmon red to yellow orange flowers that are of a crisp clear exhibition form. They are huge with a fully double 35 petals but have little or no scent. The bush has lots to recommend it too, with dark green glossy leaves, with good disease resistance, but some literature says it is prone to blackspot late in the season. The rose was made an AARS selection in 1986, and is still readily available in most nurseries.
