Rachael Hybrid Tea Roses
Rosa Rachael - Hybrid Tea Roses
Description of Rachael Roses:
Rachael is a big rose with masses of frilly petals in the centre and a gentle two tone colour. Most of the flower is creamy peach and the outer petals have a slight purple blush, with a small amount of spotted patterning. The scent is good and while each individual flower doesn't last very long, they keep on coming from spring to autumn.
This is a really shrubby rose that goes well towards the back of a border.
