New Zealand™

This elegant exhibition rose bears very large and full blooms that are a warm creamy pink with a strong, old rose fragrance. These blooms are borne mostly solitary, with high centre and petals that reflex. If you choose not to deadhead the New Zealand rose, it will produce lovely decorative hips in the fall, amidst large, semi-glossy and leathery dark green foliage, with canes that are nearly thornless. This bush will grow upright to between 4′- 5′ tall.
