Buck Rose - Pearlie Mae

Pearlie Mae (1981)

Apricot blend grandiflora. The large, ovoid-pointed buds of Neyron rose (RHSCC 2 5C) on the reverse and a blend of empire yellow (RHSCC 11D), lemon yellow (RHSCC 1 3B) and neuron rose on the face open to double (30-35 petals), shallow-cupped, 4.5-5 inch blooms which retain the colors of the bud. The abundant, leathery, large, semiglossy, olive green foliage shows copper tints when young and has good field tolerance to Blackspot and Powdery Mildew. The thorns are red-brown and awl-shaped. The vigorous, erect, 3-3.5 ft plants are bushy and bloom well from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
