Elegant Lady Rose

Hybrid Tea Roses

The Elegant Lady rose is a stunning Hybrid tea rose with the same classic beauty and radiance as the late Diana Princess of Wales.

The soft ivory petals are overlaid with a pink blush giving the rose a sweet and radiant look.

Elegant Lady Rose

The Elegant Lady rose was bred by a rose breeder at Jackson & Perkins in 1998. (Dr. Keith W. Zary) It was introduced into the U.S in 1999 by Bear Creek Gardens as "Diana, Princess of Wales".

It begins with pointed, ovoid buds that open to become ivory with swirling pink tips that are a bit darker at petal ends.

The classic Hybrid tea form high centered blooms have a mild, yet sweet tea fragrance.

The healthy green foliage keeps this an attractive rose bush in the garden even when not in bloom.

These roses make wonderful cut flowers for the vase, and Jackson & Perkins says it can also be grown in large containers.

If you grow roses for cut flowers, and live in the right climate to grow them, this elegant pink blend would be a welcome addition to the garden.
