The Signature Rose has large roses that can open up to around 6" across. The rose pink and cream Hybrid Tea roses are magnificent!
The satiny soft petals are hot pink with a cream colored center and cream reverse. The colors are such, that they might remind you of a glowing candle.
The Signature Rose was bred to be an exhibition rose, and the beautiful flowers can attest to the fact that these high centered Hybrid Tea roses are perfectly formed, and are the perfect roses for cutting.
They are simply stunning in the vase, and once cut they last more than a week.

The long, pointed buds open to become quite large and full, perfectly formed rose flowers that appear singly on the bush. The flowering comes in flushes throughout the growing season on a bush that is upright and vigorous growing, quickly becoming a bush about 4-5' tall and wide.
The flowers do not fade, even in hot sun.
The semi glossy foliage goes all the way to the ground, making a nice display in your garden without the need for planting something smaller in front of it.
This rose does not like really wet climates, and is not as cold hardy as some others of this variety so you should give it winter protection.
Plant it in a sunny spot that is well drained.
'Signature' is proven to have good disease resistance against mildew, and black spot but it could be susceptible to Rust.
This very beautiful Hybrid Tea was hybridized for the Jackson & Perkins company by a very respected hybridizer (William Warriner) in 1998.
