Basye’s Purple Rose

July 18, 2014

‘Basye’s Purple’ rose has reddish brown bark, blue-green foliage, and beautiful single velvety maroon-purple flowers graced by purple stamens that are bright yellow at the tips. It is truly a royal rose. It was bred and introduced by Dr. Robert Basye in 1968 and is a cross between R. rugosa and R. foliolosa. It has wonderful bright green feathery foliage that is very much like its parent, Rosa foliolosa, and showing little of the rugosa characteristics.

SOURCE 

It will become a fairly large shrub of about 7 or 8 feet tall and at least as wide, with a very nice compact, arching habit. Like most Rugosas, this one repeats it’s bloom all through the season, although the individual blooms last only a day or two.

07-18-blog

SOURCE

It has a fruity fragrance, has an average diameter of 2.5″ medium, single bloom form about 4 to 8 petals and it blooms in flushes throughout the season. It is very hardy, vigorous and heat tolerant and does not set many hips.

Cadenza Rose

June 27, 2014

Cadenza was first bred by David L. Armstrong in 1967 in the United States. It was introduced in the US by Armstrong Roses as “Cadenza”. Cadenza is an excellent candidate for cutting and drying, as it tends to maintain its red coloration and doesn’t blacken with age. Clusters of ruffled red petals which fade slightly to burgundy are supported on strong stems. The bush is upright and angular with large glossy leaves and gives no indication of insect or disease problems.

06-27-7AM

SOURCE

Cadenza is dark red with mild fragrance and has an average diameter of 3″, it has medium to large double cupped bloom form with 17-25 petals. Cadenza is an occasional repeat bloom in the season and can be used for cut flower or pillar or shrub.

06-27-blog

SOURCE

Cadenza is heat tolerant and very disease resistant. To encourage re-bloom…  remove spent blooms, remove old canes and dead or diseased wood. It can be grown as a climber in mild climates and can be pruned to maintain a shorter habit.

Hybrid Tea Roses

June 8, 2014

Hybrid Tea Roses are considered a rose royalty. The term however is an informal horticultural classification of this group of roses which is a cross between hybrid perpetuals and the old fashioned tea roses. The Hybrid Tea Roses are classified as a modern garden rose. They are perhaps the most popular rose in the world and the most popular flower. It has all the virtues one would look for in a flower: beauty, fragrance and easy maintenance.

06-08-7AM

SOURCE

The Hybrid Tea Roses produce the showiest blooms; the flowers on hybrid tea roses may have over 60 petals and can be as large as 5 inches across. They have large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Most hybrid tea roses tend to be upright and can reach up to 2 metres in height depending on the cultivar, growing conditions and pruning regime. The long strong stem of the hybrid tea rose make them a great cut flower.

06-08-blog

SOURCE

The birth of the hybrid tea rose was recorded in 1867; it was raised by Jean-Baptiste Guillot, a French nurseryman. The Hybrid Tea Roses however did not become popular until the beginning of the 20th century with the cultivar Soleil d’Or. Although Hybrid Tea Roses suffered a declining popularity among gardeners and landscapers due to its tendency to be stiffly upright with sparse foliage, they remain the standard rose in the industry and are still favored by small gardens.

06-08-blog2

Hybrid tea roses need to receive at least 6 hours of sun a day, so strategic location for planting is necessary. Plant the hybrid tea rose in a soil that drains easily, put a deep layer of mulch around the tea rose bush to keep the weeds away. Water regularly, deep watering is preferred at least once a week. Fertilize your hybrid tea rose with a rose specific fertilizer three times a year for healthier bushes and bigger blooms. First application should be done after pruning in spring, followed by during the first blooming time, and the last in mid to late July. Pruning should be done when the hybrid tea roses are still dormant.
