Cool Summer Exhibition Roses
Hi-- Since my heat index is only 1 to 2, I'm looking for suggestions for exhibition hybrid teas that don't need a lot of heat to do well. I've won most often with Kardinal, Lynn Anderson, Leann Rimes, Signature, Secret and Pristine. The orange Kardinal sport Maharishi shows great promise. Anyone know if that is the same rose as "Orange Kardinal"? Also, a few years back I remember that a pink sport of Kardinal was on the cover of American Rose Magizine. Anyone know who discovered it, what it is called and if it is available? Although hybrid teas are my favorite, I've won mini queen, dowager, victorian, classic and modern shrub and both floribundas far, far more often than queen. Figures, doesn't it!
