Roses On The Rise – Neil Diamond – Roses You’ll Want To Grow In 2015

Neil Diamond - Hybrid Tea - Weeks Roses

Neil Diamond – Hybrid Tea – Weeks Roses

If I were you I would prepare yourself to be “WoW’d by this rose! Neil Diamond, a new hybrid tea rose introduced by Weeks Roses has been a real winner in our garden this year. Planted in a less than ideal spot in the garden, this rose has thrived. We love the pink to reddish and white blooms. Disease resistance has been great. With a steamy hot summer, we have had very little disease on this rose. The look of this rose is enough to get your attention, but you’ll also be glad to know that it is also a fragrant rose!  Thus far, this rose has also held up well as a cut rose in a vase, so after one year in the garden, i’m placing it on my list of Roses on the Rise for 2015!
