World Federation of Rose Societies Hall of Fame

1968 Rose of the Year®

Turn your garden into a fragrant cloud with the powerful, delightful perfume of this lovely rose. The fragrance is legendary for its complexity and its intensity. Notes of citrus, spice, fruit, and rosy damask all mix together. The overall effect has been compared to the smell of cloves or pumpkin pie. What a beautiful way to make your garden smell delicious.

A treat for the eyes as well as the nose, Fragrant Cloud offers up unique coral-washed blooms with intensely plush petals. This tetraploid is a child of Prima Ballerina and Montezuma, and thanks to this pedigree, it exhibits fantastic garden performance, with vigorous growth and healthy foliage. It especially shines in colder climates where other roses might struggle. The color only improves in cool weather.

The bloom show begins in early summer, the pointed, ovoid buds opening a soft coral red and maturing to a darker geranium red. The blooms are not only overly large (measuring 5 inches wide on average), but also highly symmetric and very full, packed with up to 30 petals. They grow singly or in small clusters, each fragrant bloom presenting a shining example of what a hybrid tea should look like. And the combination of impeccable form and unparalleled fragrance makes them the perfect choice for the vase. This floriferous variety sets its gorgeous, fragrant blooms on until frost.

Plant this hybrid tea in a sunny, well-drained spot. Deadhead promptly to encourage quick rebloom. Prune dead, diseased, or crossing canes in early spring to encourage better airflow.
