Double Delight Strutting Her Stuff



Double Delight remains one of the most beautiful rose blooms that can be found. If you want that classic, long-stemmed, immensely cuttable, fragrant-filled rose to fill household vases, then this is one rose to have. You will not find a more delicious smelling rose or a prettier one. I am NOT a fan of most hybrid tea plants because they are so disease prone. I only bought this one on a whim because I found it grafted on Fortuniana rootstock at a local Lowe's. Growing on that rootstock makes a HUGE difference. This plant has been healthy, floriferous, and a strong grower from day one.

I really love that rose. You captured it perfectly.

I just love the Double Delight rose too. I like them better when they first open their blooms than the rosy tint that gets all over them with age.
