Diamond Jubilee Hybrid Tea Rose

Diamond Jubilee is well named. It is a stunning rose. Warm yellow, fully double flowers start as classically shaped rose buds before opening into perfect 4" (10cm) hybrid tea blooms before they gently fade to the softest shades of cream. And from the start of flowering, in June, the non-stop show goes on well into autumn. The royal Diamond Jubilee may have come and gone, but you can't keep a good rose down, and this is one of the very best. Roses sometimes suffer in wet weather but Diamond Jubilee is an exception possibly looking even more beautiful in the rain. The foliage is a glossy dark green and the plant branches easily to make a well proportioned bush. If you are in the market for a golden/cream hybrid tea rose then you should not have to look any further, but if not or if you are looking for companion roses to plant in the same border, then take a look at our the rest of our rose list or see the full range of hybrid tea roses available to buy online.

Great for your garden

Diamond Jubilee will be one of the stars of your show, so find it a sheltered spot with good soil and plenty of light. Plant it where you can get at it easily - if for no better reason than it is scented and a great cutting rose so will attract traffic. It is a sensible size, growing to about 4ft (1.2m) and makes the most amazing display when planted in a group. If your colour scheme is predimonantly yellow, then underplant with daffodils and narcissi to bring colour in the spring. And they will love the top dressing and mulching you lavish on your roses....

Trivia

Or not so trivial. Diamond Jubilee was bred by perhaps the greatest rose breeder of the 20th century, Eugene (Gene) Boerner, who produced a succession of magnificent roses in the US. He was much loved in the industry; Sam McGredy, also a great breeder, credits Gene with having taught him how to hybridise roses. And during WW2 he put all the royalties that were collected on Kordes' roses into an escrow account which he sent to the Kordes family after the war. Kordes, one of the best breeders in the world today, would not be in existence if it were not for that.
