Teasing Georgia

Teasing Georgia
Rose of the Month For September, 2010
by Lydia Treadway, Master Rosarian

The petals of ’Teasing Georgia’ are the color of a wonderfully rich, saturated apricot-yellow. The form is cup shaped and the outer petals fall back and fade to pastel yellow. The rose’s center provides a most pleasant medium strong, tea rose fragrance. Ulrich Meyer & 
Georgia Tornow My rose is happily nested against a deck and the garden wall and trails gracefully. It is a great rose to have in the garden as it has good disease-resistance and is repeat-flowering. This is a yellow rose of refined beauty. It is named for Mr. Ulrich Meyer, after his wife Georgia, who are both well known media personalities in Germany. The Royal National Rose Society classes this rose as a cluster-flowered shrub. In 2000, it won both a Royal National Rose Society Trial Ground Certificate and the RNRS Henry Edland Memorial Medal for the best scented variety.
