Sugar Plum Rose

Lavender Colored Hybrid Tea Roses

The Sugar Plum rose bears lavender colored Hybrid Tea roses with a strong fragrance. The beautiful blooms smell like old fashioned Sweet Peas.

 The flowers are lavender with traces and splashes of pink and purple.

This rose begins with ovoid, pointed buds that are a deep pink/purple color. As the flowers open they become a much lighter shade of lavender.

Don't confuse this Sugar Plum rose with a pink variety with the same name. There is another Hybrid Tea with this same name that was hybridized in 1954 by Herbert Swim, or a miniature variety hybridized by Ralph Moore in 1994.

Sugar Plum rose

This beautiful lavender 'Sugar Plum' rose was hybridized by Jackson & Perkins.

This rose is double bloom form, with very well formed rose flowers that are born on erect, 18" stems that are perfect for cut flowers. Once you see (and smell) these lovely roses, you will most certainly want to pick some to bring inside!

They are easy to enjoy both in the garden and in the vase.

These fantastic looking Hybrid Tea's are not only a unique color for a Tea rose, but the dark green glossy foliage is quite disease resistant.

The blooming on this rosebush begins in early summer and continues through late summer, giving you plenty of beautiful roses all season.

I can see where the name might have come from; This rose is very sweet smelling (Sugar) and a beautiful Lavender color (Plum).

You should deadhead the spent flowers as soon as you can to keep the new flowers coming on 'Sugar Plum'.

Uses for this rose include; Garden rose, perennial beds and/or borders, cut flowers.
