Rosa 'Black Cherry' PPAF
Fights off mildew and rust!
It may get its name from the large, nearly black buds that begin its marvelous blooms, but 'Black Cherry' undoubtedly gets its fine reputation from the exquisite deep red flowers and rich, old-fashioned damask scent with which it fills the garden all summer. An old-fashioned fragrance that may remind you of your grandmother's garden, it is evocative and irresistible!
The blooms are fully double, 3 to 4 inches wide, and very long-lasting after cutting. This floribunda begins flowering in early summer and continues in waves all season, especially if deadheaded promptly. Vigorous and easy, it is resistant to such diseases as powdery mildew and rust, which makes it easier to grow in warmer climates.
'Black Cherry' reaches 3 to 4 feet high and wide, suitable as a low hedge or container subject as well as a border standout. Its flowers are fade-proof and exquisitely formed. Make this reblooming delight an integral part of your sunny garden for many years to come! Zones 5-9. Cannot ship to NJ.
