Top Gun Rose (Rosa ‘WEKmoridahor’)

Top Gun Rose

Take your garden to the next level with this gorgeous, hard-working Top Gun™ Rose (Rosa ‘WEKmoridahor’)! All season long, you’ll be rewarded with clusters of vivid red blooms that are suffused with a deep burgundy overlay. Held in clusters, each bloom has a contrasting golden-yellow center that is a bullseye for bees and butterflies!

Top Gun™ grows into a rounded and bushy Shrub Rose. This high performer really delivers in terms of prolific bloom production! Make the most of the decorative, dark red, semi-double blooms are held in clusters at the end of the canes. Just a few snips and you’ll have a full bouquet!

Hybridized by world-renowned Rosarian Tom Carruth, Top Gun™ Shrub Roses have fantastically near-bulletproof resistance to major Rose diseases, including Blackspot, Powdery Mildew, and added resistance to Rose Rosette. No wonder Weeks Roses call it the “Best of the Best!”! Add supreme hardiness throughout USDA growing zones from 4 to 10 and you have a maverick among Rose bushes!

Planting and Application:

Plant these stunning, easy-care shrubs somewhere front and center! Top Gun™ Roses can easily be included in a mixed garden design with Ornamental Grasses, and prairie perennials. Pick up the golden-yellow centers with other golden bloomers! Semi-double flowers like this are appreciated by butterflies and bees – meaning they can easily access the nectar and pollen resources and not fight petals. Why not add several Top Gun™ Roses to your Pollinator Garden to offer an extended season of easily-accessible nectar?

On a balcony, pot up your Top Gun™ Rose as a “Thriller” in the center of a hardy Container Garden. Then surround it with a few of your favorite Perennials and spilling Groundcovers for a professional look that can thrive for many years. Even a new homeowner can successfully grow Top Gun™ Roses. How about adding curb appeal with several planted on either side of your front door?

  • Burgundy Tinted Deep Red Flower Clusters
  • Golden Centers Rich in Nectar & Pollen For Pollinators
  • Prolific Repeat Blooms
  • Hardy Round Form & Lush Green Foliage
  • Very Cold & Heat-Tolerant Landscape Shrub Rose
  • Beds & Borders, Specimen, Low Hedges & Accents

Tips for Care:

Give Top Gun™ Landscape Roses a starring role to play in your garden scheme! A decidedly modern Rose, any location with full sun, well-drained soil, and plenty of air circulation makes Roses happy! Provide a regular schedule of water, especially if you’ll keep your prized Rose in garden containers. Provide at least a 3 to 4-inch layer of mulch over the roots to keep them cool, but pull it back away from the stems. Regular Rose food supports the almost continuous bloom.
