Tequila Sunrise Rose

Tequila Sunrise is a rose to raise a glass to! It has lightly fragranced double blooms, which begin with pointy red and gold buds, opening into deep orange-yellow, with petals heavily edged with bright scarlet. contrasting with lovely glossy, bronze-tinted foliage. See more hybrid tea varieties, or browse all of our other colours and sizes of rose here.

It's small for a hybrid tea rose, reaching just 75cm, so it's perfect for large containers, patios or small gardens.

Tequila Sunrise has been honoured with the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit, the premier benchmark of quality and performance for gardeners.

Keep it fed and well watered and you can look forward to these show-stopping blooms well into autumn.

Looks great with...

This rose is so vivid, you really don't need much else going on; the beauty of its flowers could even be lost in the jumble of a normal flower bed. Try placing it in front of deep-coloured, leafy plants that it will shine against, such as purple-leaved Cotinus (smoke bush), Sambucus nigra (black elder) or even plain old ivy.

For pots, plant with grasses and big-leaved, architectural plants like Rodgersia or Fatsia japonica. Avoid anything variegated, as they will distract from the roses. You're looking for contrasts in leaf shape, form and movement that will be the supporting cast for this rose in flower, and which complements its glossy, bronze-tinged foliage.

If you are planting her in borders, group several together and underplant with dark-leaved Heuchera varieties (Ebony, Plum Pudding, Obsidian, Dark Storm and Black Taffeta) which will act as a contrast to the flowers and show off the foliage.
