The large double blooms are classic Hybrid Tea form, and come in clusters, that are long lasting when cut.
The blooms have long stems, making them perfect for really nice bouquets that have the fruity fragrance of raspberries.
This rosebush keeps the blooms coming, and doesn't need to be dead-headed. It also does not produce rose hips.
An occasional light pruning is all it needs to keep it tidy. You can keep it to a more compact size by pruning it lower.
It is best pruned in the spring, when it should also be fertilized.
Parentage; Jersey Beauty x Tiffany
It grows vigorously with an upright, arching habit that makes it very useful for hedges. It doesn't grow as well as a climber, as it tends to look lanky.
This rose, being bred by a Texan academic, excels in hot climates, but also does well in temperate regions.
It is resistant to black-spot, and unaffected by most rose diseases.
Note; It can however be effected by black-spot in cool damp weather.
The developer of Belindas Dream, Dr. Robert Basye, (a retired Math professor), named this rose for the daughter of a friend in Caldwell Texas.
Only select roses are chosen to be Earth-Kind roses. They are selected by the Texas Agrilife Extension Service, through the Earth-Kind landscaping program.
The rose must pass exceptional field trials and demonstrate it's superiority. It must perform well in landscaping situations, grow well in a variety of soils, and excel with minimal fertilizers and pesticides. They must also have excellent heat and drought tolerance.
In other words.....they must be exceptional roses that are very care-free!
Most gardeners fall in love with this attractive, fragrant rose once they see it, but growing it is proof of it's durability....
