Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose

Select Item


Velvety Petals + Long Stems = the Perfect Cut Flower

A vigorous grower and a sensational cut flower, this 2004 Jackson & Perkins introduction (bred by renowned hybridizer, Dr. Keith Zary) will set your late spring to early summer garden ablaze with its dazzling blooms.

Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose starts off with elegant pointed, ovoid buds that are yellow with orange edging. Once they open, they reveal up to 35 thick, velvety petals of rich orange with a glowing yellow reverse. For the most part, these 4-inch blooms appear singly atop long, sturdy, 16- to 20-inch stems, making them excellent, long-lasting cut flowers. They arise in generous flushes throughout the season, and although they only emit a light musky fragrance, their vibrant colors and beautiful form make this hybrid tea a valuable addition to any garden. The plant is attractive in its own right, covering itself in glossy, dark green foliage that's shown good disease resistance. What a stunning display this hybrid tea makes when its fiery flowers are set against that dark background of attractive, healthy leaves.

Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose grows to a mature size of up to 6 feet high and 3 to 4 feet wide, so it's suitable for a number of gardening applications. Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose will look gorgeous planted in the middle of a flowering hedge or behind shorter perennials in a mixed bed. Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose will even do well in a large patio container. But of course, Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose is a must-have for the cut garden. Provide Wildfire Hybrid Tea Rose with well-drained soil in full sun, and remove spent flowers in order to encourage rebloom.

Beautiful Orange!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Our new rose just (we actually bought 3) and it’s definitely a good, dark orange! Just gorgeous! I wish I could add a picture, but it definitely is the same color as the picture.

Helped get me through

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

J&P Roses got me through the time my husband at the time was in Mosul. CNN was live covering the war and I was scared, so to stay away from TV I took to rose gardening. Princess Diana and Wildfire roses got me through it. 12-13 years later rose gardening still cheers me up.

Beautiful rose!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I planted this as a bare root plant two years ago and it immediately demonstrated that it is a hearty and enthusiastic grower. The blooms are large with sturdy stems and are a brilliant orange that I can see from inside my house -- definitely a centerpiece. The blooms can be enjoyed cut for vases or on the bush. I insulate the base with mulch and leaves in the winter and it was one of my first bushes to start growing again after a very harsh winter last year. Strongly recommended.

Choosing Your Roses

Bare root roses are the most common form of roses for spring and early season planting, and come in two types: grafted and own root.

Grafted Bare root Roses
Own root Bare root Roses

Grafted roses, sometimes referred to as budded bare root roses, have roots that belong to a different variety of rose than the shoots. While the shoots will grow into the variety of rose you've selected, the root variety has been specially grown and developed for hardiness, improved resistance to common diseases, and improved resistance to certain weather conditions. The roots on any grafted rose you receive are usually already two years old, so they'll establish in your garden more quickly when planted.

Own root roses are grown from rose shoot cuttings and develop their own root system. Unlike grafted roses, both their roots and shoots come from the same variety of plant.

All Jackson & Perkins bare root roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth in our state-of-the-art wet cooler, so they'll be delivered to you with no foliage or blooms. The wet cooler has a uniform storage temperature set just above freezing and uses a fog system to provide consistent humidity of 100%, ensuring the roses remain fully hydrated and don't exit dormancy before leaving our facility. While you might see some variance in size, even within the same variety of bare root rose, all our roses meet the same rigorous standards of quality.

So, not sure which type of bare root rose you should choose? Don't worry, we've got that covered. We've researched which varieties of bare root roses grow better as grafted or own root, and both types can be planted in the early spring months, so just choose the variety of rose you're most interested in and get planting.

Though you might be surprised or intimidated when you receive a box of bare root roses filled with roots and shoots, rest assured, with the proper care, these little bundles will grow into stunning roses.

Container Roses

Container Roses

Container roses are typically available in 2-quart sizes or larger and come with established foliage that may or may not have blooms. While bare root roses should generally be planted in early spring, container roses allow you quite a bit more flexibility in planting time, from spring all the way through fall in many zones. Fall can be a good season to plant container roses because it allows them enough time to establish themselves before cold or freezing temperatures arrive.
