Oh, Blue Girl Hybrid Tea Rose (Rosa sp. ‘Blue Girl’), you’ve stolen our hearts. This Rome Gold Award winner truly takes it to the next level. Everything about this Rose is enchanting, especially the spectacular color.
The high centered blooms are five and a half inches tall and feature an astonishing 30 – 35 petals apiece. They’ll open slowly, and last and last for you. Held aloft on long stems, these are perhaps the perfect Rose for cutting. This beautiful rose is used in many wedding arrangements.
Watch in amazement as the icy tones of this beauty reveal themselves to you. Opening from dark buds, the huge flowers have a true silvery-lavender blue finish. The classic high pointed petals glaze into an incredible rare gray-blue as the flower ages.
The silvery-lavender color is so unusual. The color changes in different lighting, and as each bloom ages. They will eventually mature into a head-turning, steel gray-blue when fully open.
You’ll never, ever get bored with this dynamic variety. Its upright habit calls to you to study its impeccable blooms.
The breathtakingly fresh color is a wonderful achievement in Rose breeding. But the Blue Girl isn’t done knocking your socks off! We haven’t even mentioned the fragrance, which smells like a lushly layered Lilac and Rose scent.
Place these where they’ll deliver maximum impact in your landscape. You’ll want to both see and smell them. They’ll make a wonderful grouping, especially when used in an odd-numbered group of 3, 5 or 7. Create a curved garden bed around your patio, so you won’t miss a moment!
Blue Girl Hybrid Tea is disease resistant and a vigorous, continuous bloomer. They have long, strong stems, too, making them perfect cut flowers for jaw-dropping arrangements and cut flower displays.
How to Use Blue Girl Hybrid Tea Rose in the Landscape
Just like a good little black dress, the Hybrid Tea Rose can be dressed up or down. Pair them with other cool-toned Rose beauties, such as Pope John Paul II or Violet’s Pride™, or take a walk on the wild side with a deep purple pairing such as the Intrigue Rose.
They’ll work beautifully in a contemporary setting. Place these supermodels against a shaggy backdrop of Juniper or the rougher texture of a Rugosa Rose. You might be very surprised how much each plant gains by visually playing off each other.
They look great in a small informal bed, or formal rows encased in a bed surrounded by a sheared boxwood hedge. These will be the show-stoppers in your Rose garden and cut flower displays. Combine them with other flowers in a cottage garden or mixed border with reds and yellows for a fresh, modern take in the garden or the vase.
Tips for Care
Roses produce the most flowers in well drained rich soils in full sun. Roses also appreciate having mulch covering the soil to keep the foliage clean and disease free. Watering your roses should be done at the soil line, keeping the leaves dry for best results.
These do sell out quickly because of their unique color. Once someone sees the unique color, they just have to have one.
Don’t wait too late to order yours. Blue Girl will come to you already growing in a large container that will make an instantaneous impact in your landscape. It is the one to have!
