Introduced in 1837, Tuscany Superb produces large, semi-double, 5” blooms with 24+ petals in a lovely deep, crimson purple. Her velvety petals contrast with rich, golden-yellow stamens on this once-blooming, nearly thornless plant. As her name suggests, she is “superbly” fragrant. Tuscany Superb is at her best in spring with dense foliage as a backdrop for her gorgeous, porcelain-looking blooms. She is exceptionally fragrant, a favorite of pollinators, and can handle dappled shade as well.

Getting established before the winter

I ordered the Tuscany Superb to plant in the fall in order to give the plant a head start for the next growing season. Already, after a month, it's taken off with lots of new foliage above and sprouting shoots below - I believe. Next spring, I look forward to enjoying some of those old rose blooms.

It’s not thornless

This is not a thornless rose as advertised. Mine is covered with thorns and I’m not happy!

Beautiful Velvety Flowers

This once blooming bush has lovely velvety looking flowers and beautiful foliage - with hints of red in the leaves and stems. I may plant this variety again in my parkway (I live in the city of Chicago). It would be perfect to fill in that space because Tuscany Superb does love to sucker - sometimes quite far from the bush - it's a bit invasive when it's happy. I actually dug this bush up (it was 5 years old) this spring because it was in a spot that I didn't want it to spread all over. 3 months later and I'm still digging up Tuscany Superb all over that garden. I did read that you have to pull off all the leaves in winter to get it to bloom. It bloomed profusely once I started doing that. This bush has green leaves well through the winter in Chicago.
