The Black Magic Rose, are Hybrid Tea roses, with very beautiful blooms that are simply stunning! The dark red petals have darker red edges, that are so dark they almost appear black. The buds on the Black Magic rose are darker than the open flower. It is surely not a Black rose, but it is as close as they can come. Roses with very deep red/maroon coloring, usually have names with "Black' in it.

These (almost)black roses,are resistant to mildew, but not Blackspot.

Type Hybrid Tea Rose

Hybridizer Tantau 1997

Blooms Very dark colored buds (almost black) open to reveal blooms that are a rich velvety dark red garnet with darker edges. The flowers are 4' across, with 30 petals.

Growth Habits This rose bush can grow 4-6' Flowers can be a bit (scarce), the bush is sometimes a bit stingy with them.

Foliage The foliage makes a nice backdrop for the lovely flowers. Dark green and very glossy.

Fragrance Subtle, sweet

Hardy Zone zones 7a-10

This hybrid tea rose blooms late Spring/early Summer. It blooms on new wood, so you should prune it early to get the most flowers.

As with other Hybrid roses, this one does best in warmer climates. It holds it color well through the hot sun, and does not fade. A superb cutting flower, with very long lasting blooms. It grows on long stems (24-28"), perfect for the vase. This rose is actually a florist favorite. Cut blooms can last a week or more. The red/maroon, velvety soft blooms make a dazzeling bouquet!

Everyone who grows this rose 'Black Magic' agrees: The blooms are exqusite, the bush doesn't produce as many as they would like, and the fragrance is so mild, that it isn't really a factor in choosing to grow it. The flowers themself are the deciding point. Once you see them, you'll know why everyone feels they are worth the effort to grow them.
