Named for the Thomas Hardy novel, Tess of the d’Urbervilles® features large, fragrant, 4" flowers with 70+ petals in a bright crimson color. Her blooms have a nice, deeply curved shape in the early stages, and then her petals turn back to a less formal flower. Tess’ blooms are hefty and usually bend over, giving an elegant, cascading effect to the bush. Her growth is robust and spreads against large, dark green foliage. We love Tess’ old rose and fruity-myrrh fragrance and that she is a generous, repeat bloomer. She can handle partial shade or pots and makes an excellent Climber.

I cant wait !!

I purchased in 2022. Spring came and this Tess gave me runners with beautiful roses. As I am in Texas the heat was brutal in Summer 2022 and 2023.
I lost 2 other roses, but this Tess has stood the heat in both 2022 and 2023. When it blooms it is beautiful and smells wonderful !! I can't wait until it comes into it's beauty this next Spring and Summer and hopefully for years to come.

Off to a wonderful start

It's true: when you unbox the roses you are really worried! But watching the video was really helpful and encouraging. And now, three weeks later, the empty stalks have filled out, have a ton of new glorious growth. I am really excited to see how these bloom next year!

Striking cherry red climber 🍒

Your eyes are immediately drawn to and transfixed on her billowing petals and extraordinary cherry red color. Get this rose! You won’t be disappointed!!
