Buck Rose - Earth Song

Earth Song (1975)

Deep pink grandiflora. The medium-sized, long-pointed to urn-shaped buds of tyrian red (RHSCC 66A) open to double (25-30 petals), cupped, 4-4.5 inch blooms which pale as they open to tyrian rose (RHSCC 66D). The sweetly fragrant blooms are borne both singly and in clusters of 5-10. The leathery, dark green foliage is tinted with copper when young and has good resistance to both Blackspot and Powdery Mildew. The thorns are red-brown and flanged awl-like. The erect plant is bushy and free-flowering from early June to killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa to 10-12" without protection.
