Double Delight Rose fulfills the two highest demands of a rose. An eye-catching color combo and fantastic nose-pleasing fragrance. The prolific bush provides lots of creamy pointed buds that blush red with the rays of the sun. Deep green leaves. Best color/flower size in warm days & cool nights.An outstanding bicolor, combining creamy white with strawberry red. Petals have a fruity fragrance.
Nicely formed cream color with strawberry markings that invade the outer ring of petals as they unfold, becoming more pronounced as the summer wears on. It not only deserves its place on the show table but also makes a dramatic cut flower with its intensely fragrant profusion. The plants are medium to tall, slightly spreading and quick to repeat.
Double Delight Rose is a bushy plant and can grow to 1.5mts – particularly loves the hot weather when the cerise border becomes very defined and the fragrance supreme. In humid, wet weather, Double Delight sulks and the blooms refuse to open; the foliage is very susceptible to black-spot so this rose should be planted with lots of air circulation and few or no other plants around it. Quite spectacular, medium height, very fragrant and a beautiful cut flower.
Double Delight Rose has been a favorite rose with gardeners for many years and was inducted to the World Federation of Rose Societies, Rose Hall of Fame in 1985 being voted the people’s choice most popular rose in that year.
