Chihuly
Rose of the Month For March, 2010
by Lydia Treadway

This rose was selected to honor America’s famous glass artisan, Dale Chihuly. It had to have impeccable style and a changing arrangement of flashy colors. The ‘Chihuly’ rose has it all!

Dale Chihuly's Persian Ceiling As the sun hits the opening petals, they shimmer from apricot yellow to dazzling orange and deep red. The upper red petals sometimes show subtle striping. This floribunda produces a remarkable display against the deep dark green leaves and mahogany-red new growth. I have one standard tree rose in my garden. These beautiful blooms just float in space parading a changing array of flashy colors. Enjoy this healthy, disease resistant floribunda. Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom. I just love this rose.
