Description

Cultivar: Firefighter
Class: Hybrid Tea

A big super-fragrant long-stemmed rich-red Hybrid Tea is the epitome of the classic rose in many people's minds. That's why there could be no better choice for the first sponsorship rose of the 'Remember Me' garden fund. Each plant sold will contribute toward the fund's effort to honor the victims of 9-11. You'll love the vigorous bushy plant that provides armloads of buxom blossoms. Lots of clean green leaves keep it looking good in the garden, too. Cooler temps give the best red color.

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.
