Catalina™ Grandiflora Rose

Rosa 'JACcolap' PP#19,490

Catalina™ is a great performing rose with an alluring, soft apricot-pink color that blends beautifully with other flowers and a light but pleasing tea rose fragrance. Each 4½-inch bloom contains 35 to 40 petals with a darker pink reverse that creates wonderful depth and visual appeal. Classically shaped, pointed, ovoid buds open into immense, high-centered, very full-petaled flowers on long, strong, 16- to 20-inch stems that are just perfect for cutting.

Blooms appear in flushes throughout their early summer to late summer season, arising in clusters of three to five per stem and finishing in varying shades of warm apricot-pink and yellow. They stand out dramatically against the glossy, dark green foliage. The attractive plant grows to 5 feet high and 4 feet wide and is ideal for a number of applications, including beds, borders, and of course, the cut garden.

Plant in well-drained soil in full sun. Spring pruning is recommended. Old and dead wood should be removed and canes that cross need to be cut back. Gardeners in warmer climates should cut back the remaining canes by about one-third, while those in colder areas will probably want to prune a little more than that. Var: 'JACcolap' (PP#19,490). Zones 4-9.
