The Brigadoon and Broadway Roses

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

If you’re looking for wonderful rose varieties for the cutting garden, you won’t go wrong with Brigadoon and Broadway.These are delightful cut flowers.


Brigadoon Rose

For cut flowers it is hard to beat the Brigadoon rose. The long stems are just perfect for cutting. The petals unfurl in perfect swirls. They’re a blend of pink-coral, fading to cream towards the base of the petals. These very large double blossoms are a classically shaped rose with a wonderful scent.

The deep green foliage serves to accent the flowers. This hybrid tea bush reaches five feet in height with a spread of about four feet. If this plant has a fault, it would be that Brigadoon is attractive to Japanese beetles. It is suited to zones five through eleven.

Brigadoon was introduced in 1991, and was bred by Bill Warriner. It was released by Jackson and Perkins, and was named an All-American Rose Selections winner in 1992. A repeat bloomer, its parents were an unnamed seedling and the Pristine rose. It is well on its way to being a classic variety that has gained much popularity in the nearly twenty years since its release.


Broadway Rose

This hybrid tea is highly recommended as a cut flower. The blooms have a very long vase life. These open on long, sturdy stems. The bushes provide a ready supply of stems for cutting all season long. The deliciously scented blooms open from classically shaped buds. They’re a bicolor blend. The petal color can range from a yellow-orange with pink tinges to pinkish-red with yellow. The flower color can vary slightly when the plants are grown in full sun. The double blooms are up to five inches across and contain 35 petals.

This hybrid tea has deep green, leathery, shiny disease resistant foliage. Recommended for zones four through eleven, this grows as an upright bush about five to six feet in height with a spread of two to four feet. Introduced in the U.S. in 1985, this was bred by Perry. Its parents were Sutters Gold and (Gold Glow x First Prize). This was named an All-American Rose Selections winner in 1986.
