Francis Meilland Rose Bare Root

A true breeding breakthrough, this new rose offers the classic blooms of a hybrid tea rose and the disease resistance of a shrub rose. Its 4-5″, double, two-toned blooms sit atop long stems that are perfect for cutting. Growing 4-5′ tall with a 3-4′, upright spread, it fits well into the back of mixed perennial flowerbeds. A very fragrant rose, it blooms from late spring to fall. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Bareroot. Zones 4-10. Rosa meitroni PP19970
