Item #45779


World Federation of Rose Societies Hall of Fame | Portland's Best Rose

Jackson & Perkins Rose of the Year 1968

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.

Dead wood

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The plant never had a single leaf and is clearly dying despite care. Very disappointed as have ordered roses from this company in the past with good results.

Our Favorite Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is a rose that we discovered almost 50 years ago and have enjoyed ever since. It’s bloom shape, aroma and color are classic. We have planted it in the yard of every residence we have had since that first home and it has been given as a gift in many instances.

40 Year old Fragant Cloud Tea

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

We enjoyed a J&P Fragrant Cloud for 40 years in our Rose Garden. A Thorn-less Black Locust Tree planted ten feet away grew up and a large root reached our "Fragrant Cloud" and killed it! we live in area 4 in Fennimore, WI We are ordering a replacement today.

Doing Well

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Purchased this 4 years ago here in Northeast MA. The aroma is unreal! I get comments from everyone who stops to grab a sniff! Its not 100% though, it is temperamental. Too much rain it will stop flowering. Winter deep cold will kill some branches. Overall though its doing well. A nice addition to our garden. 4 stars!
