Voodoo Hybrid Tea Rose

Bareroot Grafted
Item #23739


All-America Rose Selections (AARS) Winner 1986

All of us here at Jackson & Perkins are delighted by this hybrid tea, and we think that once you begin growing it, you will be too. We were initially bewitched by Voodoo's beautiful color changes, but since growing this rose in our own gardens, we have come to admire the power of its vigor and disease resistance nearly as much as all those sweet-scented, ultra-colorful flowers.

The blooms are truly magnificent. Urn-shaped buds open to reveal bright yellow petals washed in orange and peach tones. Before you can turn around, the orange and pink have dominated, soon to be flushed with brilliant scarlet. At the height of the season, when this very floriferous shrub is covered in fully double 5- to 6-inch blooms in all stages of changing color, the sight is as bold and refreshing as popsicles on a hot summer day.

Wonderfully fragrant and quite long-lasting after cutting, Voodoo is a cut flower lover's dream. But this is one rose that does not need to be tucked away in the cutting garden. Tall and very well-branched, this shrub is clothed in glossy, leathery foliage from spring until hard frost, standing up well to rough weather. In fact, it takes its cultivar name of 'AROmiclea' from its behavior in the trial gardens the very first year it was grown for production. The gardeners tending the young plants were amazed by how neat and healthy this rose was, never needing to have yellowed or diseased leaves removed or stems cut away. Voodoo earned the nickname "Mister Clean," and the first letters of each word in that nickname became part of its official varietal name: miclea. Now that's a testimony to how it will hold up in your summer garden.

Voodoo was introduced in 1984 by noted breeder Jack Christensen, who selected it by crossing the seed parents Camelot x First Prize x Typhoo Tea with the pollen parent Lolita. It has stood the test of time marvelously. Free-flowering, large-flowered, colorful, ultra-fragrant, and vigorous—there is simply nothing to dislike about this exceptional hybrid tea. The All-America Rose Selection judges apparently agree, because they handed Voodoo top honors in 1986. Thirty seasons later, it remains one of the most highly sought roses for American gardens. We here at Jackson & Perkins are honored to make it available to you.
