The Harry Weathcroft Rose was discovered by Wheatcroft & Sons in the UK in 1972. It is a highly unusual Hybrid Tea Rose with petals that are red and generously striped with gold. It is bushy with a vigorous habit, large bloom form blooming in flushes throughout the season and mild fragrance. It can grow to a height of 70 to 100 cm with a width of up to 60 cm. This adorable hybrid tea rose is hardy in USDA zone 7b through 10b and is susceptible to blackspot.
For spring pruning remove old, dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back remaining canes by about 1/2. In colder areas, you’ll probably need to prune a little more than it. A popular old favorite striped Hybrid Tea rose, suitable for a garden border or patio container.
