ROSA 'Buralp'(NATIONAL VELVET™) PP7236
Hybrid Tea Rose, National Velvet Hybrid Tea Rose
The classic dark, velvety red blooms of National Velvet really stand out in the garden. This exceptional hybrid tea rose was bred by Larry Burks in 1989 and has an upright, bushy habit and strong stems lined with sharp woody thorns. Its compound leaves are leathery and purplish dark green. From late spring to frost, it offers double blooms that dark red and have as many as 35 petals. Everblooming roses such as this will rebloom better if their spent flowers are removed.
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. They are also susceptible to a suite of viral and bacterial diseases as well as insect pests, so it is wise to select a robust and resistant cultivar when choosing a rose. Fortunately, cultivars like National Velvet are bred to be disease resistant.
Tea roses are a garden must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and cutting gardens.
