What ever the pattern, all are quite beautiful, and are sure to be a conversation piece not only in the garden, but in the vase as well.
The blooms on Daring Spirit rose are sweetly scented of spice. They are typical hybrid tea form, with flowers that will reach about 5" across. These striped tea roses are stunning as cut flowers.

Each year new roses are introduced and offered for sale to the public. Each one is carefully monitored before introduction. Sub-standard roses don't make the cut... I think this one is a winner!
This new introduction is sure to be a hit in the garden! If you are lucky enough to live in a zone capable of growing this Hybrid tea, it will surely liven up your garden.
The bush itself is attractive even without the blooms. The foliage begins a wonderful burgundy color, then turns to a nice dark, glossy green color. And you know what glossy leaves mean.......Right! They are disease resistant!
This rose can be used as a garden rose, in a perennial bed mixed with other flowers or roses, or as a hedge. With their beautiful, and unique color, along with a terrific fragrance, they also make great cut flowers, so be sure to cut some to bring inside.
