Ideal for novice rose growers and seasoned rosarians alike, this floribunda is one of the hardest-working, most productive and attractive cultivars we have ever seen. Everything about it is just a little better: its bloom strength, its disease resistance, its fragrance, and even its color. A good choice for a large planting as a low hedge or a ribbon of color in the sunny border, Our Lady of Guadalupe is highly recommended.
The blooms appear in great clusters, pink tinged with silver to highlight the many layers of whorled petals. Each 3-inch flower sports about 20 to 25 petals, and they open from pointed buds into high-centered blooms boasting the classic hybrid tea form. Cut all you like; Our Lady of Guadalupe will have many, many more where those came from.
The first and heaviest bloom is in early season, but this shrub repeats vigorously all season, so it’s difficult to catch it out of bloom. Few roses can keep producing during the hottest, most humid spells, but this is a very heat-tolerant cultivar, and its vigor is tremendous. You will be surprised by the flower power of this compact little shrub.
Highly fragrant, these blooms have a sweet old-rose aroma that will remind you of grandmother’s garden and deliciously perfume the garden or home. The combination of the soft pink tones and the tea scent is quite old-fashioned, but there is nothing old-fashioned about the vigor and determination to rebloom of this shrub.
Our Lady of Guadalupe reaches 2 to 3 feet high and wide, a good size for a low hedge, a mass planting, or an accent in the sunny border. It is compact enough for containers, too, so you can grow it north of its hardiness range with winter protection. Highly disease- and pest-resistant, it stands up to powdery mildew and rust beautifully, and its thorny canes keep nibbling pests at bay. Consider adding this high performing, beautiful cultivar to your landscape this season.
