Waiheke Rose

Pink Grandiflora Roses

The Waiheke rose is a very unique and beautiful rose. It is a Grandiflora rose that is sometimes classified as a Hybrid Tea.

The blooms are shades of pink with a hint of orange/coral and a tint of white shading. As you can see from the photo, the petals have an unusual wavy shape to them.

It mostly produces single blooms, but can sometimes produce them in small clusters of 5-9.

Note; I planted  this rose early this spring, and although it seemed slow to start; I must say that I am thrilled at the beautiful flowers, and overall health of this bush.

It has a very nice fragrance, and makes a nice rose for cutting.

Since this is the first year, I'm not sure about the hardiness, but at this point, I would highly recommend Waiheke!
