With a sweet pink of a sunrise over the ocean, this Kiwi-named rose is just gorgeous. Its soft, pink color seems lit from within and contrasts beautifully with deep green, glossy leaves on long stems. Fragrance lovers will be unable to resist New Zealand, thanks to its super-fruity, near-sugary fragrance. Do you ever see a rose and just know it will smell amazing? That's this cultivar. Its fully double form is perfect for arranging, and, with excellent disease resistance, New Zealand Hybrid Tea will produce unblemished flowers perfect for cutting. Likes consistent temperatures. Best size when cool.

  • planting instructionsDig a hole large enough to easily accommodate root structure. In cold climates, position the graft knot/crown 2 to 3 inches below ground level, in mild climates, position the graft knot/crown right at ground level. Place the plant at the proper height in the hole, and fill two-thirds full with the amended 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 completely settled, fill the hole to the top with the remaining soil. Sprinkle lightly with water to assure good moisture.
  • pruningRemoving spent blooms will encourage more flowers. Prune dramatically in early spring, after the danger of frost has passed and before new growth has begun. Remove any dead or damaged branches.
