Opening Night Hybrid Tea Rose



The pointed buds are nearly as lovely as the blooms

All-America Rose Selections (AARS) Winner 1998

This award-winning hybrid tea will put on a top-notch show in your garden from late spring to early fall, presenting you with stunning red blossoms. Heat tolerant and vigorous, Opening Night is adaptable and easy to grow in a wide range of climates and soils, so it can take center stage in gardens across the country.

In 1998, this distinguished rose won an All-American Rose Selections award, the first true red hybrid tea to do so in 14 years. A sensational cut rose, Opening Night starts off with lovely pointed, ovoid buds that unfurl to reveal 25 to 30 large, thick, velvety petals. The 4-inch blooms stand atop strong 15-inch stems and have a light sweet fragrance that only adds to their appeal. With good substance and beautiful form, these blooms are long-lasting in garden or vase.

The plant is lovely in its own right, offering an upright, slightly spreading habit of matte, dark green leaves that make a gorgeous backdrop for the deep red flowers. Reaching a mature size of just 4 feet high and 3 feet wide, it's suitable for a variety of gardening applications, from beds and mixed perennial borders to low hedges, the cut garden, and even large patio containers. If you're planting more than one, space them about 3 feet apart, providing well-drained soil in a sunny spot. Water regularly and feed well during the growing season, and this formal, elegant hybrid tea will regale you with magnificent color for years to come.
