Bella'roma Hybrid Tea Rose

Bareroot Grafted
Item #24771


Huge Blooms with Strong Fragrance

Jackson & Perkins Rose of the Year 2003.

Bred by renowned hybridizer Keith Zary, and a customer favorite since its introduction, this splendid hybrid tea is just as beautiful and fragrant as its name suggests. High-centered blooms, containing up to 30 warm-yellow petals, their edges blushing rich pink, emit a powerful fragrance and arise on long, sturdy stems, perfect for cutting.

Growing to a mature size of 4 to 5 feet high and 4 feet wide, it cloaks itself in glossy, dark green foliage that stays attractive all season long and is resistant to mildew and rust. It's a great choice for any sunny garden spot, and of course, it's essential for the cut garden.

Bella'roma likes medium-moisture, well-drained, slightly acidic soil that receives full sunlight. Water it deeply and regularly, in the morning whenever possible, avoiding overhead watering if possible. Remove spent blooms to encourage more to grow, and prune in spring by cutting back any old, dead, or diseased wood as well as canes that cross.

This rose has been in the ground 2 to 3 weeks now and is growing like a weed. Can't wait for the blooming to begin.

Bella'Roma Favorite Fragrant Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have three Bella'Roma rose bushes in my rose garden and I must say that of all my roses Bella'Roma is my favorite aromatic rose. It has been described as "dripping with fragrance" and I can tell you that it truly does "drip" of a luscious rose fragrance. When my husband mows the lawn he can smell them from across the lawn.

Favorite Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have had my 5 rose bushes for about 4 years now and could not be happier with them! They are right next to the front door and the fragrance they release is wonderful! I cut them for the house and they last a number of days. Totally pest free - I'm so happy to have found this marvelous rose!

So fragrant

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Ordered one from here a long time ago- maybe 9 years. Because of location it is in, it never gets past two feet tall and never more than about 5 - 10 blooms a season.Sadly, for the most part it is ignored. However, every year it rewards me with several blooms with the most majestic colors and fagrance imaginable. Smells like a rose should. Loves the leftover tea and coffee poured on it as well as the grounds at its feet occasionally. Dust once in awhile with Sevin and that is it. Wanted to order more, but they are sold out.


Choosing Your Roses

Bare root roses are the most common form of roses for spring and early season planting, and come in two types: grafted and own root.

Grafted Bare root Roses
Own root Bare root Roses

Grafted roses, sometimes referred to as budded bare root roses, have roots that belong to a different variety of rose than the shoots. While the shoots will grow into the variety of rose you've selected, the root variety has been specially grown and developed for hardiness, improved resistance to common diseases, and improved resistance to certain weather conditions. The roots on any grafted rose you receive are usually already two years old, so they'll establish in your garden more quickly when planted.

Own root roses are grown from rose shoot cuttings and develop their own root system. Unlike grafted roses, both their roots and shoots come from the same variety of plant.

All Jackson & Perkins bare root roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth in our state-of-the-art wet cooler, so they'll be delivered to you with no foliage or blooms. The wet cooler has a uniform storage temperature set just above freezing and uses a fog system to provide consistent humidity of 100%, ensuring the roses remain fully hydrated and don't exit dormancy before leaving our facility. While you might see some variance in size, even within the same variety of bare root rose, all our roses meet the same rigorous standards of quality.

So, not sure which type of bare root rose you should choose? Don't worry, we've got that covered. We've researched which varieties of bare root roses grow better as grafted or own root, and both types can be planted in the early spring months, so just choose the variety of rose you're most interested in and get planting.

Though you might be surprised or intimidated when you receive a box of bare root roses filled with roots and shoots, rest assured, with the proper care, these little bundles will grow into stunning roses.

Container Roses

Container Roses

Container roses are typically available in 2-quart sizes or larger and come with established foliage that may or may not have blooms. While bare root roses should generally be planted in early spring, container roses allow you quite a bit more flexibility in planting time, from spring all the way through fall in many zones. Fall can be a good season to plant container roses because it allows them enough time to establish themselves before cold or freezing temperatures arrive.
