Georgia
Rose of the Month For September, 2005
by Barbara Picarelli

I hope the rest of you havenít suffered the horrors of the weather like my poor roses have. Most are absolutely leafless. This particular rose isnít however, with glossy leaves of a terrific green, and blooms about 5 inches across. I first saw this rose in bloom in Reganís nursery, and having a very dear friend in Georgia, just had to have it. It makes me think of her, a true Georgia peach.

The bush hasnít grown exceptionally tall, staying under three feet, but has continued to bloom in spite of the horrible heat, cold, more heat, etc. The Combined Rose List simply lists it as a HT hybridized by Weeks in 1980. Modern Roses XI does a little better, labeling it an apricot blend with very double flowers, 53-55 petals. An offspring of Arizona and an unnamed seedling, it has a very slight tea fragrance. The stems are somewhat small, which probably accounts for the tendency to have those large blooms sometimes looking at the soil. I still love it in spite of itís faults.
