Some Classic Roses for Cutitng

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Among the modern classic roses are some wonderful varieties that make perfect cut flowers.


The Climbing Peace Rose

The climbing Peace is a classic rose that is ideal for the cutting garden. A repeat bloomer, it will supply floral designers with lots of flowers for cutting.

This hybrid tea climber is a sport of the original Peace rose. It has become a classic. The climbing Peace is considered by many to be “the finest and most beautiful of hybrid tea climbers.”

Initially introduced in 1950 to the U.S., it shares the same parentage as the original Peace rose. The blooms are just a little bit smaller than those of the bush Peace. They’re a blend of gold and pink.

This has medium to deep green, shiny leaves. Its canes tend to be rather stiff and heavy. This bush climber can reach ten feet in height with a spread of six feet. The vigorous plants are winter hardy to zone five. However, it really blooms better in warmer climates, and can be grown in zone eleven. Be patient with this plant as it often catches its breath for a couple years after being transplanted before it will start to bloom. But this is well worth the wait.


The Dicky Rose

This award winning rose is now a modern classic. It makes an ideal cut flower. Richly double with 35 petals or so, the lovely blooms are three inches wide. They’re a blend of orange-pink, coral-pink, or reddish-pink with salmon. The reverse is usually slightly lighter in color. A free flowering plant, this produces lots of stems for cutting. It is a repeat bloomer. This provides a supply of blooms for cutting from spring to fall. The fully double, scented flowers open in large clusters.

The medium to deep green, shiny leaves serve as a beautiful background for the flowers. This shows some resistance to disease.

This floribunda is a strong, bushy, vigorous plant that is usually up to four feet in height and up to three feet wide. It is recommended for zones five through eleven. Its parents were Cathedral and Memento. Also known as Anisley Dickson, it was bred by Patrick Dickson of Northern Ireland. He introduced it in 1984, and named it for his wife, who is nicknamed Dicky. This award winner received the Royal National Rose Society Presidents International Trophy. In 1993 it was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Gard
