Buck Rose - Wild Ginger

Wild Ginger (1976)

Orange blend grandiflora. The ovoid-pointed buds open to double (30-35 petals), shallow-cupped, open, 4-4.5 inch blooms of deep Orient pink (RHSCC 36A) washed and veined with azalea pink (RHSCC 36A) and cherry pink (RHSCC 45C) and with lemon yellow at the base of the petals. The blooms, borne singly and in clusters of 4-10, lighten with age and have a pleasing, fruity fragrance. The medium-large, leathery foliage is dark green and tolerant of Blackspot and Powdery Mildew. The thorns are red-brown and flanged awl-like. The erect, 4 ft plant is bushy and blooms profusely from June until killing frost. Plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
