Great Garden Rose – ‘Artistry’ – Hybrid Tea

I first admired this rose in the garden of a friend. It’s coral colored blooms jumped out at me as I strolled through her garden of 100 or so roses. Upon inquiry I was immediately told that this was ‘Artistry’, a hybrid tea rose that “is one of the best garden roses, I grow” she said. It’s beautiful form, color and abundance of blooms sold me and I knew that I wanted this rose.  I have two shrubs of this rose planted beside one another and it has proved to be  indeed one of the best roses I have grown. A profusion of blooms, good disease resistance, interesting stamens and many ohhhs, and ahhhh’s!

    Another gorgeous rose Chris. That it is disease resistant that makes it an additional wonderful rose in the garden. Some of the prettiest seems to have no fragrance though which is sad.

    a 100 roses?! Wow! (OK, enough envy now for me – that’s a lot of work. 😉
    On a more serious note, how’s the scent of this one?
