Plant Common Name

Belinda's Dream Shrub Rose, Shrub Rose

General Description

The shrubby, pink-flowered 'Belinda's Dream' offers large, very double blooms that are sweetly fragrant and long-lasting. It was bred by Dr. Robert Basye of Texas from a cross between 'Jersey Beauty' and 'Tiffany' and was first introduced in 1992. Overall it is disease resistant, though it does have some susceptibility to blackspot.

The bushy, medium-sized rose has strong stems lined with sharp woody thorns. Its compound leaves are leathery and medium green. From late spring to frost, it offers an abundance of long-lasting, fully double flowers that come in flushes. During the hottest months of summer flowering may subside. Each fragrant bloom has many bubblegum pink petals. If left uncut, persistent orange-red hips follow the flowers.

Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. Fortunately, cultivars like 'Belinda's Dream' are bred to be disease resistant.

Shrub roses are a landscape must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and large landscapes. Enjoy 'Belinda's Dream' massed in a sweep or planted singly as an accent plant.
