The recent rise in fame of the Osiria rose through social media is astonishing. Since we are one of the few nurseries that grow Osiria, we received the brunt of the attention to the point that our server crashed on the day we opened our shopping cart for the season.
Osiria has a wonderful bloom, red with a silvery reverse. Some of the pictures on the internet are highly photo shopped, Osiria is not burgundy. Unfortunately the rest of the plant has many shortcomings; poor plant health, few flowers, and slow re-bloom.
Our nursery prides itself to be on the forefront of healthy, hardy, and floriferous selections. We are concerned that too many newcomers to the rose world infatuated with Osiria will be disappointed with their first rose experience and will walk away from rose culture altogether. For this reason we have come to the decision to stop the production of Osiria.
