Malibu Hybrid Tea Rose

Bareroot Grafted
Item #38662


Subtle Scent Redolent of Cinnamon and Cloves
Capturing all the hues of the setting sun, Malibu is one of the most sensational hybrid teas available today. Giant 5-inch blooms slowly open from pointed, ovoid buds to reveal 30 to 35 petals painted with a blend of pink, cream, coral, and gold (with a lovely cream reverse.) Plus, the high-centered blossoms release a subtle but very pleasing scent redolent of cinnamon and cloves. From early summer to late summer, these exhibition-quality blooms arise profusely on 16- to 24-inch stems, adorning the vigorous, perpetually flowering shrubs, for a display that is simply dazzling in the sunny garden. And, of course, with their great substance and keeping quality, you'll want to snip a few throughout the season to enjoy in vases in your home.

Bred by Dr. Keith Zary and introduced in 2009, Malibu deserves a place of honor in your garden, for not only are its flowers simply stunning, but the disease-resistant plant itself is a pure pleasure. It offers an upright habit of glossy, dark green foliage. There really is nothing not to love about this rose, and here at Jackson & Perkins, it has become a favorite.

Remove spent blooms to encourage more to arise. Prune in spring by removing old or dead wood and any canes that cross. If you live in a warmer climate, cut back the rest of the canes by about one-third; a bit more in colder areas.

Love the blooms!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The Malibu was one of 4 different tea roses I bought from Jackson Perkins this spring. I was nervous... since I'd never bought or grown tea roses before, and knew they could be finicky. All my plants arrived in great shape, and soon budded out happily... Malibu being the first. Unfortunately, we had a very wet spring, and this plant suffered from a combination of aphids and fungal disease. BUT because it was so hardy, after a bit of TLC and some pruning of the diseased leaves, it bounced back wonderfully! I have several gorgeous blooms on it now, and loads of buds on all my other roses. (Would love to send some pics!) I will definitely buy more from Jackson Perkins! (Looking at tree roses now :-)...

Bought this variety last year and thru all last summer,(the first year the bare root plant was in the ground) this plant gave us lots and lots of GORGEOUS roses. This plant is GREAT for someone who enjoys fresh cut flowers in the window...the scent is heavenly and when the breeze comes thru the window it spreads the scent of the malibu thru out the front end of my house.LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! Looking foreward to many more beautiful blooms this year,now that the plant is established. VERY hearty,as well.Grows like crazy!!

beauty to behold

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Malibu is a beauty rose, the combination of colors will have you looking twice. Big blooms with a high center form, medium scent and agressive grower. Purchased as a potted plant three seasons ago, mine has just begun to mature with four basil breaks. Slow to open and stays on the bush and in the vase for a long period. doesnt mind the heat and is winter hardy to zone 6
