ROSA 'JACtorob'(COLOR ME PINK™) PPAF

Plant Common Name

Color Me Pink Rose, Hybrid Tea Rose

General Description

Hybrid tea roses are the divas of the garden. Their exquisitely fashioned, long-stemmed flowers epitomize the ideal "rose" for many gardeners. The sweet cultivar Color Me Pink™ is unusual because it produces both clustered and single stemmed roses.

This hardy rose is an upright deciduous shrub with thorns. It is everblooming and has compound leaves that are glossy and dark to medium green. Its beautiful roses are fully double and pink with cream undersides.

Color Me Pink™ is a moderately cold hardy rose that grows best in temperate climates with enough winter chill to allow for dormancy. Like most roses, it prefers full to partial sun, moist, perfectly drained soil and sites with good air flow. It also grows best in drier climates, because they disfavor the fungal diseases that plague roses. The maintenance of good airflow through good planting and pruning practices will dissuade fungal problems too. Most roses are rife with pest and disease problems. Fortunately, new selections like Color Me Pink™ are more disease resistant.

Tea roses make superb cut flowers and look great planted in any sunny mixed border or large container.
