Tahitian Treasure - Star Roses & Plants
Tahitian Treasure from Star Roses has been a winner in my garden this year. Planted back in the early spring, this rose has shown excellent disease resistance and bloom power. It’s early September and we’ve had four good flushes of blooms from this first year shrub with no disease problems at all. Hope to see another flush of blooms by Thanksgiving. Great color too!

This is gorgeous! I’m a big fan of roses. It’s even part of my name. Great website!
thanks for stopping by. Rose lovers always welcome! ha
Hi there, nice blog. I’m a fellow rose grower, I have 85 or so bushes in a zone 5 garden. I’m seriously considering growing this next year due to the virtues it has which seem to be praised by most nursery catalog listings. I”m seeking the opinion of someone who has actually grown the plant – I’m pretty sure it is very disease resistant like the Knock Outs from the same rose hybridizer (Radler) and I’m confident it will be cane hardy in my zone 5 winters but how well does it bloom, how large are the blooms and do they have any fragrance? I like the idea of a grandiflora rose that does not need to be sprayed, covered for winter, etc. Just wanting to make sure this isn’t basically a grandiflora version of the double knock out lol. Thanks for your feedback.
In my garden this rose takes on mote of a floribunda form than a grandifloria. This year was year two in my garden and we had two good flushes of blooms and many sporatic blooms in between. A keeper for us. Hope this helps.
Thanks for your response. Interesting that it is more of a floribunda for you as every description of it I have read says it takes on a Grandiflora form! How different is it then from the pink Double Knock Out? With a bloom size of 2-3 inches and a deep pink color, it seems pretty much like the same plant.
