Elina Hybrid Tea Rose (Rosa ‘Elina’)
Elina Hybrid Tea Rose
The Princess Grace of Hybrid Teas, the lovely selection, the Elina® Rose (Rosa ‘Elina’) is a major award winner. People around the world have fallen in love with these full, open blooms with 30 – 35 petals apiece. Everything about this Rose hits the right note! Even the light scent is appealing to the nose as the sculpted petals are to the eyes!
This is an optimistic and memorable Rose, with huge, 6-inch bright creamy yellow blooms that are held aloft upon long, graceful stems. The color is radiant but never overwhelming. This is a perfect Rose for use in cut arrangements! Guests will admire your Elina® floral arrangements as a gracious accent to your tablescapes.
The strong dark green growth is vigorous and acts as a standout backdrop for the radiant blooms! Elina® is just as fresh today as when she won awards in 2006, truly a lovely Rose and a delight to grow in your USDA growing zone 6 to 9 garden! Much taller than wide at 4-6 feet in height and only 2-3 feet in width, this Hybrid Tea Rose grows almost columnar.
Elina® produces a lavish number of elegant blossoms that will act like a beacon to draw your eye to your landscape! Not to mention quite a few pollinators will fly by to check out your garden. A must-have for the Rose garden and Cut flower border, the tall but narrow growth makes Elina® ideal as backdrop plantings and adding radiant blooms to mixed shrub borders.
The narrow footprint of this Rose makes Elina® perfect for lining pathways and walkways, gracing a tight stretch along your driveway, or as a row before a fence, rock wall, or even around your home. Suitable for large sunny planters enabling you to keep their grace and beauty close by to adorn your garden rooms like a living sculpture!
Hybrid Tea Roses produce the most flowers in well-drained, rich soils in full sun. Roses also appreciate having a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch covering. This helps stop splashing soil, which keeps the foliage clean and disease-free while holding moisture in more consistently and insulating the roots. Watering your Roses should be done at the soil level, keeping the leaves dry for best results. Water regularly, especially throughout the hot summer months. Provide good air circulation and a location with the morning sun to dry their leaves.
Like Princess Grace, known for her flawless beauty and natural charm, this Rose is never overdone. Instead, you’ll appreciate the chic glamour of 2006 “The World’s Favorite Rose”.
