The April Moon rose bears luminous, pink colored Hybrid Tea roses. The bright pink color of these roses seem to glow like a full moon in April.
A 2015 introduction from the Jackson & Perkins company. They say that this rose has the brightest and biggest blooms that they have seen.
This unique colored rose begins with ovoid pointed buds. The opened flowers have different tones of pink that are so bright, they almost seem neon.
The blooms are classic double bloom form with high centers typical of the Hybrid Tea rose blooms.
The name for this beauty actually came from names that the Indians gave to the moon at different times of the year. In April, they called the moon the "Pink Moon" because at that time of the year the pink phlox bloomed. Because of the bright pink color of this rose, J&P named it "April Moon".
