(Plant Patent #8279) A big, luminous shell pink that probably opens a little too fast to be a good exhibition rose, but it has everything else going for it. The foliage is elongate and very dark green with a lustrous quality that is surprisingly clean. Since its introduction, New Zealand has been one of our top sellers each year simply because its unmatched fragrance keeps finding new noses. Its vigor will require you to disbud the many side buds if you want long stemmed single flowers, but if you let them all bloom, you can cut big sprays of large flowers that will fill any house with its sweet aroma. Extremely prolific for a large rose and very quick to repeat. Flower Size: 4-6". Fragrance: Intense, sweet honeysuckle. Hybridizer: McGredy, 1995.
