New Zealand Rose

Hybrid Tea Roses

The New Zealand Rose, are pink Hybrid Tea roses with a wonderful sweet fragrance.

The soft pink blooms have the classic hybrid tea rose form. The blooms have a blush pink on the upper sides of the petals, and a slightly darker, peach color on the reverse.

Even the high pointed, deep pink buds are lovely against the large, disease resistant foliage. This one is considered one of the most beautiful of the modern roses.

More about the rose New Zealand...

This vigorous, Hybrid Tea rose bush, produces an abundance of flowers mostly singly, and sometimes in clusters. The large flowers can be in clusters of 3-7, on long, strong stems.

You'll get flowers all season on this beautiful rose bush. You'll want to pick lots of bouquets, as they are great roses for cutting.

They are also great on the show table, so if you like to exhibit your roses, these are a great choice.

These (McGredy roses) are simply a great rose all the garden, for exhibition, and for cutting.

Don't be in a hurry...give it a year to establish itself in the garden, and watch how beautiful it can be.

This breeder (Sam McGredy) is given credit for breeding large-flowered roses with exceptional character and quality, and this rose can attest for that quality.
