A delight for small gardens and patio containers!

A fragrant garden favorite for more than 20 years! Winner of the Gamble Medal for fragrance, its fresh spicy-sweet scent is fragrant up to 10 feet away! Scarlet buds open to a creamy white-washed pink, ending in buttery yellow and strawberry red. Blooms vigorously throughout the season.

With a hardy rootstock below and a prolific hybrid tea rose on top, you won't find a more reliable tree rose anywhere than our classic 36" standards. A signature Jackson & Perkins product, they are ideal for garden or vase.

We don't know which we prefer -- the look of 'Double Delight', or its enticing spicy fragrance! The AARS judges apparently didn't either, awarding this hybrid tea high honors in 1977. It has never looked back from this glory, continuing to wow gardeners with its perfect form, profuse fragrance, and great garden performance.

'Double Delight' boasts long, sturdy stems that keep it looking its best over a long vase life. In the garden, the rich red color refuses to fade, even in punishing heat. And the vigorous shrub offers disease-resistant foliage and good branching. Growing to just 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide, it's compact enough for a container, showy enough for a flowering hedge or accent planting!

This rose performs best in medium-moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained loam in full sun. Make sure the plant has good air circulation, as this promotes vigorous and healthy growth and helps prevent disease. A layer of mulch during the summer months helps to retain moisture, keep roots cool, and discourage the growth of weeds.

It should be pruned in the spring, with the removal of old canes and dead wood. Cut back canes that cross each other. Gardeners in warmer climates will want to cut the remaining canes by one-third, while those in colder climates will probably need to trim it a bit more.

36-inch patio tree roses are budded onto a 36-inch trunk. This will make the overall tree, once leafed out and blooming, taller than 36 inches.

Back to Gardening Tips

Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!

Here's all there is to it!

STEP 1

- When your roses arrive, open the box immediately and soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can't plant them right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Sprinkle roots with water every few days. (Please note: You can also grow roses in containers that are at least as big as a bucket.)

STEP 2

- Dig a hole about 18" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it's large enough to give the roots plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides. Build a mound in the center of the hole and set rose on top. For vigorous growth, abundant blooms and lush foliage, try adding Dynamite™ Select Rose Fertilizer to the soil. It promotes more efficient transport of water and nutrients throughout your new rose plant.

STEP 3

- Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole. Tamp down lightly to remove air pockets and water well. Spread mulch around the plant to suppress weeds and retain moisture. Water 3-4 times a week until leaves begin to grow, weekly thereafter.
