The Clouds of Glory rose was named so because the soft, delicate colors on these Hybrid tea roses will make you think of soft, puffy clouds.
This rose begins with ovoid, pointed buds that unfurl to pure white petals with the most delicate flush of pink in them.
Have you ever looked up at the sky just before a sunset, and noticed the white clouds were tinged pink?
You'll notice the center of the rose has more of a pink hue to it. Before you even get close to it, something else will grab your attention; you won't miss the alluring fragrance.
The open bloom form, Clouds of Glory rose has the old rose fragrance of the roses of yesteryear. Picking them from long 14-18" stems will be glorious indeed!
And not to worry, it produces them all season long! This rose is classified as a (perpetual) bloomer. Meaning it produces blooms continually from early summer through late fall.
