New Rose For My Garden – ‘Signature’ – Hybrid Tea



I first saw this rose in the garden of a friend and I was immediately struck by its beauty and form. The color is wonderful; a deep pink with cream. It went from ‘like’ to ‘buy’ the moment I saw it in person. The blooms you see here are the first from my new shrub.  Can wait to see how it performs in the spring.
