An unusual lobelia blue color, this Hybrid Tea is a lovely rose with a fragrant scent. Beautiful, long pointed buds open into eye-catching 4-5” blooms with 32-40 lavender petals which deepen with age. She is an upright, continual blooming, bushy plant with serrated leaves that start red-bronze and finish a matte-green. Blue Skies is a Griffith Buck rose of very complex breeding ancestry and is winter hardy in the midwest without protection.

True to Form

This bush flourished rapidly and us blooming right now. Roses are delicate, sturdy, and long lasting. It is only 2 months old in my ground. Arrived defoliated byt fully hydrated and packed in superior packaging.

Quick growth

Planted in a container, zone 7, there wasn't a leaf on it when I planted it just 4 weeks ago, early August. Now it has grown twice the height, with large leaves which went from bronze to green, and already has 4 forming buds. I am so looking forward to seeing them bloom in the next days.

Slow start - black spot

I purchased two Blue Skies for planting spring 2017. They came healthy and beautiful from HR but we had such a wet summer! I was plagued with black spot the whole summer. Constant pruning to keep the black spot at bay kept the plants small. Towards August/September when the rain subsided, the blooms came out and I had more cane growth. I'm hoping for better success in 2018. *I followed all of HR's recommendations on planting, fertilizing and treating for black spot*

A Truly Beautiful Rose! Beautiful!

This Rose plant took a while to settle in and begin blooming. I was kicking myself because I had not read the reviews. Then, when I did I was pretty discouraged. NOT! This Rose is NOT spindley, it's vigorous and when it finally put on buds it produced at least 6, followed by another 4 or 5. The "blue" is nowhere near Lobelia Blue in my garden, (alkaline) but it is lovely, rather soft Lavenderish Blue/Pink. Light pastel color. Wonderful Tea Rose shaped bud opens to a very high centered bloom. Lasts for days through HOT weather. I am very pleased with this variety. Can't wait until next year for larger and even more blooms!
