This amazing cut rose in a bud vase never drops a petal.

First Prize does have a light rose fragrance, but more than fragrance, this rose is stunning. I have a new bush and the first bloom slowly opened a little more each day for a week, then it went through a torrential downpour. The next day I cut it and brought her inside. It's now been inside for 5 days in a bud vase and she continues to open more and more each day slowly exposing her pistil with the edges of the petals browning a little, but not one petal has fallen. Just amazing. Such a beauty. I love this rose. I live in the California desert and in the right location roses will grow here.

Beautiful rose. One of my favorites. Outstanding cut rose and fragrance. First Prize is a perfec...

I see someone wrote this has no fragrance. My First Prize rose had fragrance. Gophers killed it overnight, so it needs protection from gophers. I've recently read that planting garlic cloves around a rose protects it. I plan to do this. when it is available again.

No fragrance

I planted this rose last year and I will agree it has a beautiful huge bloom with great color. But I buy roses for fragrance now that you cannot even buy cut roses with fragrance. This one is hugely disappointing when it comes to fragrance and it has none at all.

Definitely First Prize

Zone9+...Scottsdale Afizona.
My plant is over 20 years old. Every year I say, "Im cutting this baby back to humility range this year! Never works.The bush is a ten footer any way you lay your ruler, and some blooms are 8" . Right now in mid April there are over a hundred blooms on this beauty! This growth will continue through May into June until the temps hit 115. Then everything stops metabolizing, including people...and roses.

The most beautiful rose!

Had this rose at our other house. When we moved, we couldn't find another one like it. Finally found Heirloom Roses and "First Prize" was out of stock, When it became available we ordered some and each time "First Prize" has a new bloom we have to go check it out.

The pinks are gorgeous and have different shades. Just beautiful and they keep blooming!
