Polar Star Hybrid Tea Roses

The Polar Star Rose is an award-winning hybrid tea variety with shapely, very full, double, pure white blooms, which in different lights seem to be accented by cream or green depths to the petals. If you're looking for something different than a pale-coloured hybrid tea, take a look at our full selection of roses. Bred by German rose expert Tantau, it was awarded Rose of the Year in 1985, and more than 30 years later, has more than stood the test of time. It has a light-moderate scent. The high-centred blooms make it an excellent exhibition variety and is very popular with show growers. Polar Star is repeat flowering from June right through to autumn. The growth is upright and thorny, reaching about 1m tall with a spread of 60cm.

Great in your garden

If flower arranging is your hobby or you have the space for a cutting bed, Polar Star is an excellent rose to choose. It's a favourite of florists, with its white, high-centred blooms, attractive foliage and sturdy stems, especially for weddings and formal events. White roses signify purity, simplicity and sophistication. They also have a great vase life of 10-15 days, making it perfect for the amateur grower.

If you're considering growing for exhibition, whether a major event or the local show, Polar Star's a great first rose to try. Its good disease resistance, ease of growing (it will tolerate a small amount of shade, unlike many other varieties) and naturally showy flowers will help you wow the crowds.

As an upright-growing hybrid tea rose, Polar Star looks best in a traditional-style rose bed, rather than stuck in with mixed planting. Use several of the same variety together, underplanted with well-established companion plants such as lavender (especially white varieties), or creeping thyme, which will both keep down weeds and disguise the rose's 'bare ankles'! Embrace its cool palette - there are few roses that carry it off so well.

Did you know

Roses often have more than one name, or synonym, often depending on the country they are grown in, which can be confusing! Rose Polar Star is also known as Polar Spire, Tanlarpost, Polarstern, Stellar Polare and oddly, Evita.

If you're a literary fan, Polar Star is the best-selling sequel to blockbuster author Martin Cruz Smith's Gorky Park.
