There are several new roses this year that have caught my attention. Roses that I have grown or have observed growing and I think are one’s to keep an eye on as they become widely available in 2015. One is Bejazzo. This rose caught my eye immediately as I entered the walled rose garden at the Biltmore Estate. I was there to judge the Biltmore International Rose Trials and knew immediately that this rose was one to watch.
A climber being introduced by Kordes roses from Germany, it has an awesome growth habit and as you can see produces a magnificent flush of multicolored blooms. The one thing that impressed me the most with this particular rose was its resistance to disease. The Biltmore Rose Trials is a no-spray trial and it was refreshing to see a climber with no disease whatsoever blooming away in the garden.
This rose is definitely one to watch.
Stay tuned. Tomorrow: Neil Diamond takes the stage as another Roses on the Rise for 2015
