Double Delight 36-Inch Tree Rose

36-Inch Bareroot Tree
Item #32823


Giant 6-Inch Blooms | Award-Winning Fragrance
This rose is mis-named, for it has many more than just two delights. Between its award-winning fragrance, its huge flower size, its changing colors, and its superior heat tolerance, Double Delight is an embarrassment of riches. And now you can have it grafted atop a straight, vigorous 3-foot standard to plant in your best containers and garden spots.

Winner of an All-America Rose Selection award the moment it was introduced, Double Delight has also taken the Gamble Medal for fragrance. And that is the first pleasure you will find in this shrub: a powerful, heavenly scent combining spicy clove-like elements with pure old-fashioned tea rose sweetness. You'll want to snip a few of these blooms for the vase, but be warned: it just takes one to deliciously scent the whole house.

Next, the flower size may astound you. Double Delight is a hybrid tea, packed with whorls of petals that unfold slowly from high centers. As they open, they are pure white. But after a few days in the sun, they begin to acquire red edges, for all the world as though they were being outlined in dark red paint. A magnificent effect, particularly on a fully blooming shrub, when some flowers are still creamy white while others are in transition and still others fully bicolored.

These blooms reach 5 to 6 inches wide, and last a long time on the plant or in the vase. They appear most heavily early in the season, but continue intermittently all summer, because Double Delight is also blessed with superb heat tolerance. When the weather gets really steamy, many roses pack it in for the season, but not this one.

Double Delight has been a shrub favorite for years, but we are delighted to expand its range this season by offering it as a standard- or tree-form rose. Using our special rootstock known as Dr. Huey, we graft 3-4 Double Delight bud grafts onto the top of a straight trunk. This creates a rounded "tree" of fresh healthy foliage and long-stemmed, simply enormous blooms.

Standard-form roses are ideal for containers, but we think they also make superb punctuation plants in accent plantings and borders. They are quite winter-hardy, needing only a little extra protection at the graft site during the harshest conditions. Double Delight will grow and thrive for many years in the garden as well as on your patio, deck, or porch.

This multiple award winner is not to be missed. Such an unusual color changing process, such large blooms, such unforgettable fragrance -- Double Delight has it all.

Rose Tree

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I received the rose tree in March, it was still winter in Utah so we had to wait to plant it. We put it in the pot yesterday Apr 4 and will see if it starts to green up and develop. I am hoping for beautiful roses in the summer.

Color of mine was not as red as photos

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I planted 2 of these in in full Central CA afternoon sun, and the color was not nearly as red as the photos. Even when fed they did not get darker, and they were also spindly compared to my other tree roses. The worst thing about the color not being true, is that I have 2 Lady Diana roses nearby, so they ended up looking like 3 of the same color, when I was looking for contrast. I was really disappointed that I spent so much on these 2 and they weren’t the color I was paying so much to get.

A stunner

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Double delight is on my top 3 favorites. The foliage has suffered some pests, and is a high demander of nutrients but it’s all worth it because the blooms are giant, the gorgeous fragrance is as big as the blooms, and the color is brilliant and just like the photos. The stems are long and it makes a beautiful cut rose that lasts in the vase a long time. I have these in pots right now, but I am plotting to put them in my yard if I can plan out a landscaping situation....

Sadly, I did not get to order the DOUBLE DELIGHT rose. You were sold out. You need more stock. Your roses are wonderful. Thank you!


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.

From seed to market a new garden rose can take 8 to 10 years to develop. Every year, thousands of seedlings are grown but only a handful are selected to move into the trial phase. During this time, potential new roses are grown and evaluated in different climatic regions of the country.

When it comes to blooms, they are looking for improved flower form, unique colors, and strong fragrance.
