ROSA (LOVE)

Family

Rosaceae

Botanical Name

ROSA 'Jactwin'(LOVE)

Plant Common Name

Grandiflora Rose, Love Grandiflora Rose

General Description

This Grandiflora rose produces a continuous succession of large, long-stemmed, cherry-red blooms with white petal reverses. A 1980 All American Rose Selection, it was introduced in 1979 by Jackson & Perkins.

The thorny stems of this small, upright deciduous shrub are clothed with glossy, leathery, rich green leaves. From late spring to frost, it bears large, spicily fragrant, dome-shaped roses on long, maroon-flushed stems. Opening from pointed, egg-shaped buds of classic "tea rose" shape, the blooms have 30 to 35 deep scarlet petals with white outer surfaces. The petals curl at the tips. Bloom is most prolific if spent flowers are removed. In hot, subtropical climates, Grandiflora roses bloom primarily during the cooler winter months, and often retain their leaves year-round.

Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and moist, well-drained, slightly acid soil of average to good fertility. They are particularly vulnerable to foliar fungal diseases and thus benefits from ample spacing and an occasional pruning to promote air circulation. This cultivar is resistant to many of the diseases that plague roses, including black spot and mildew. Use 'Love' in mixed borders, low hedges, and cutting gardens.
