Touch of Class easily lives up to her rating by the American Rose Society as the finest Hybrid Tea rose in the world. Her pointed buds open slowly and spiral into one of the most beautiful, well-formed, and intricate of all roses. With a gentle blend of pink, orange, and cream and a hint of coral pink with cream highlights, Touch of Class’ 5 1/2" blooms with a petal count of 30+ rest atop long cutting stems. She is a vigorous, continual blooming bush with mahogany new foliage maturing to deep green. An All-American Award Winner, an excellent cut rose, and a color to die for - Touch of Class really is a class above the rest of the Hybrid Teas.

I love this rose! I must admit when I first saw the flower buds I wasn’t too happy, they were bright Orange - not my favorite color - and I couldn’t perceive any fragrance at all! Hmm. . . BUT - when this beauty opened it turned a wonderful soft coral and the gorgeous blooms lasted for well over a week in the vase, getting more beautiful by the day. 3 years and two rose bushes later I still can’t smell any fragrance, but that is forgiven for the sheer beauty of the flowers. I live in coastal Central Florida, and I’ve badly neglected both of my rose bushes but they have continued to thrive and produce lovely bouquets year after year.

The form, the color, the long stems, the fragrance all comes together for the perfect Hybrid Tea.

Beautiful cut or on the bush Rose

I have had this rose before and moved and ordered 2 from Heirloom. Both are beautiful in one year. In Seattle, WA Planted and treated as instructed on line.

Wonderfully fragrant

Hardy, beautiful and fragrant, everything you could ask for in a rose. I planted it 20+ years ago and until my daughter moved it, from the old house and transplanted it in early winter, it was going strong. It put on new growth and then the coldest winter in a long time hit us. The jury is still out, but it may still survive.

This is a superb rose.

I grew this rose in chilly New England for 30 years. Even though teas are not thought to be hardy enough for such a climate, this one was!! I am hoping to purchase another one from Heirloom Roses to be grown in another New England locale. She is a beauty!! Highly recommend.
