Description / Pope John Paul II Hybrid Tea Rose

Bred by renowned hybridizer Keith Zary, Pope John Paul II was proudly introduced by Jackson & Perkins in 2008, and it quickly became a favorite among rose lovers and continues to be to this day. Pope John Paul II has been awarded top honors for fragrance, vigorous growth, perfect bloom form, and good disease resistance. It's no wonder it is a showpiece of the Vatican private garden.

As well-known in the rose world as the man for whom it's named, the Pope John Paul II hybrid tea is simply one of the most beautiful and exceptional roses you will ever grow. Its 5-inch blooms are pure, clean white and emit a wonderful fresh citrus fragrance. It truly is one of the most fragrant roses of all time. The blossoms unfurl from elegantly pointed, ovoid buds to reveal up to 50 petals, each standing atop a sturdy 16- to 20-inch stem. Arising in flushes from late spring to late fall, they stand out boldly against the glossy, dark green, disease-resistant foliage.

The plant reaches a mature size of 4 to 5 feet high and 3 to 4 feet wide, with a full, bushy habit, making it perfect for a number of applications: beds, borders, large patio containers, and of course, the cut garden, because you will definitely want to enjoy these stunning, deliciously fragrant blooms in your home.

Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom. Larger flower size tends to occur in the cool spring.

NOTE: Tree and patio roses are hardy to Zone 6 regardless of the rose variety grafted to their tops.

Blooms like crazy
Review by Brian B
First off, this rose smells amazing. One of the best in my garden. Second, it has more blooms than I've ever seen for a young bush. I'll get a dozen new buds at a time. It blooms like a mature plant. Lastly, it has a great color. I live in San Diego and the sun can cook white flowers and brown their edges. This one is a champ and looks great.
Even better than the Pictures!
Review by KellyRose Grower
This is the most creamy white rose I've ever seen. It reminds me of a gardenia. Beautiful blooms and easy to grow.
non-stop flowering...
Review by Jezy
I bought this rose last year, I leave around Houston, and since the moment it settle up until now (end of the year) it hasn't stop flowering, more that 10 big flowers at the time...
Beautiful & Fragrant
Review by A star
The bare root grew pretty quickly and there were already a few rounds of blooms this year. THe size of the flower gets bigger each round and they're beautiful. It was worth buying this choice and waiting for the blooms. I sure am a fan of this Rose choice.
Hope for the Pope
Review by monniemon
I purchased this rose from J&P as a potted plant three seasons ago,it was very small and slow to get started. This bush is still not where i would expect it to be, other bushes i purchased that same year are 5-6ft with wide spread and tons of blooms, not this one, it is still small with no spread. The blooms however are wonderfully and the scent will have you sniffing all day long. Last for some time on the bush and in the vase, but its strong scent does dimenish in the vase . this season iam holding out hope for the pope to mature and catch up with its mates. I think i just got a dud bush, it happens. Perhaps i will purchase another and see what it does, until then, im keeping hope alive.
Review by Tara
Planted last spring, great growth rate and flowers the first year... this spring it has already doubled in size, I can't wait for blooms to appear!
Most beautiful Rose and fregrance
Review by Kathleen Bintner
This was one of my most favorite roses, unfortunatly it died last summer and not able to find a replacement. i have been a satified customer since 1978 enjoying the best quality in product and service since. My daughter now purchases her roses from Jackson Perkins.
Great Rose
Review by Lee
I purchased the rose a couple of years back and I felt in love with its color and fragrant. Unfortunately, I lost the plant and now I am looking everywhere to replace it.
