Introducing a newcomer that is sure to make a name for itself in the gardening world—Celestial Night™. This fabulous Floribunda type was bred from Ebb Tide, that wonderfully productive purple rose that is still popular today. But what Ebb Tide lacked in disease resistance, Celestial Night has in spades. Very rare in a purple variety, it displays resistance to the diseases that can plague rose growers and cause reduced flower production and shorter blooming periods. With Celestial Night, you get an abundance of big, double ruffled blooms of deep plum-purple on a hardy, rounded plant. In fact, the roses are so full and vibrant, they can easily be seen from a distance. Its pleasing, subtle fragrance makes it an exceptional landscape rose. Also makes a superb addition to fresh arrangements. Celestial Night flowers hold their vivid color until the blossom is completely mature. When flowers are completely mature they fall freely from the stem and when there is a breeze, they create a breathtaking "pathway to the heavens". Even after falling to the ground the petals will hold their bright color for another day or two! Many roses, especially older varieties, hold their petals on the stem while fading or turning brown, detracting from their overall appearance. Celestial Night is self-cleaning, no deadheading is required so it always looks "celestial"! Bred by Christian Bedard. Rosa cv. 'WEKebtigrad' PPAF

We are delighted to announce that Celestial Night™ Floribunda Rose has won the 2023 Members Choice Award from American Rose Society.

Also winning the American Garden Rose Selections™ 2022 Regional Choice Award in 3 regions - South Central, Southeast, Southwest, and is a 2022 Fragrance Award Winner!

Place the plant at the proper height in the hole, and fill two-thirds full with soil. Using a gentle stream of water, fill the remainder of the hole. As the water seeps in, it will moisten the roots and surrounding soil, removing any air pockets. After the water has settled, fill hole to the top with the remaining soil. Sprinkle lightly with water to assure good moisture.
