Description

Cultivar: Marilyn Monroe
Class: Hybrid Tea

It's not just gentlemen that prefer blondes, everyone loves this shapely Hybrid Tea named to honor an American legend. The extraordinarily feminine creamy apricot color holds through from the long-pointed buds to the big buxom open blooms. A gown of deep green leaves graces the cutting length stems. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but the super vase life and perfect flower form on this gem-of-a-rose will demand the devotion of every exhibitor. Some like it hot! The best apricot for hot weather.

Care

Sun Needs: Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
Soil/Water Needs: Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
