Rosa Cherry Parfait™

Description

Terrific Blackspot Resistance and Extra Heat and Humidity Tolerance

All-American Rose Selection 2003

This award winner is a fantastically heavy-blooming, disease-resistant, rugged grandiflora with flowers of red-edged white that actually darken as they mature, instead of bleaching out like older varieties.

Cherry Parfait™ is a nicely rounded little shrub that is literally never out of bloom all summer long, regaling you with armloads of 4-inch flowers from late spring until early fall. The blooms open from lovely pointed buds, arising on 10- to 14-inch stems. You will fall in love with this subtly fragrant, free-flowering beauty. Remove spent blossoms to encourage rebloom.

The leaves of this healthy, 5-foot-tall, 4- to 5-foot-wide shrub are a glossy, deep green and very lush, making Cherry Parfait™ beautiful out of bloom as well as in. And the fact that it's heat tolerant and disease resistant means it will be a pure joy for every gardener.

Cherry Parfait™ is great for beds, borders, and 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.
