Pristine Rose

Hybrid Tea Roses With the Look of Porcelain

The Pristine rose has exceptionally elegant blooms that are mother-of-pearl color, and look like they are made of porcelain.

The extra large sized flowers are blessed with a wonderful scent. The fragrance is sweet and musky. It won the top prize for fragrance in the English rose trials.

This is (THE) rose for not only cutting, but exhibiting as well. The single born flowers come on nice long stems for cutting. (Watch out for the numerous thorns)

As with most Hybrid Tea roses, Pristine is happier growing in warmer climates.

The double, tea shaped flowers are creamy white with pink blush on the petal edges. The seashell pink highlights make them look not real (like porcelain).

The large sized flowers are borne mostly singly, cluster-flowered with high centers, and re-flexed bloom form.

The colors are unfading under all climate conditions.

The flowers are (almost) white, shaded pink, and have pointed, ovoid buds. This rose repeats blooms perpetually all season.

When opened out, the flowers take on a neat, imbricated shape that resembles that of a Magnolia flower. The beautiful flowers stand out well against the dense, healthy, dark green foliage.

This rose is a vigorous grower, that grows upright with plenty of branches. It is a very good repeat flowering rose bush.

New growth is a deep crimson color.

Everything about this rose is Large; The flowers, leaves, and even the thorns are extra large.
