Availability: Out of stock

Light up your landscape with the affable deep yellow blooms of Henry Fonda™ Hybrid Tea Rose (Rosa 'Henry Fonda')! Like the film and stage actor that is its namesake, it's difficult to be in a bad mood with this yellow Rose around! The long, pointed buds are held on long stems open to show off with up to 25 thick, rounded petals! They perfume the air with a strong lemony fragrance that hails back to its lemony-yellow blooms.

Hybridized by Jack Christensen to develop a color-fast yellow bloom that won’t fade in the heat or sun, and deep green, clean foliage! Although not exactly ruffled, the yellow petals are slightly reflexed for a friendly form that lasts about a week in the vase. Enjoy cutting these beautiful, scented blooms regularly for your bouquets! Don't worry about taking too many, doing so will actually encourage a faster rebloom!

Henry Fonda™ displays excellent resistance to powdery mildew. It makes an engaging presentation in the sun-soaked parts of gardens throughout USDA hardiness zones 6 to 10. Growing about 3-5 feet in height at maturity and a bit smaller in width, this flowering shrub shines brilliantly!

Planting and Application:

Decorate your courtyard or small space with one or two of them in patio pots. How fun to enjoy the bright color from late spring through fall, calling Pollinators galore as they rifle through the petals in search of nectar and pollen! Henry Fonda™ will boost moods and boost curb appeal big time anywhere you plant one!

If one can have this effect, imagine groups and rows of these brilliant bloomers! Try a long hedge of these showy, vigorous bloomers anywhere you want a lush and light-hearted presentation. Everyone loves Henry Fonda™ Hybrid Tea Rose, so it makes a very "friendly fence" along your property line!

Add a row along your driveway, or place one of these aromatic Roses at the corner of your garage to put a smile on your face! As a big bonus, this cunning, thorny plant grows into a very effective barrier planting.

Underplant with our yellow Groundcover Roses to push the energy up and over into pure happiness! It won't take long for a garden feature like this to turn even the grumpiest bad day around!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant in a location where your Rose receives full sun with at least six hours of sunlight with good air circulation. They also need well-drained soil that is enriched and not soggy. If you have poor drainage, create a raised bed or planting mound if you need to improve drainage. Use symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster formula in the planting hole for life-long benefit to the tiny feeder roots.

Apply 3-4 inches of arborist mulch to keep the roots moist and protected. Mulch also prevents mud and water from splashing the foliage, keeping it cleaner and disease/fungal-free. Growing Hybrid Tea Roses in zones 7 and under should be mounded with 8-12 inches of mulch in late fall - after the frost has killed the leaves - for the best overwintering outcome.

Deadhead blooms often to keep fresh flowers coming back. Check out information on winterizing, and un-wintering your Roses in our Garden Blog, plus all the tips and tricks you need when pruning your new prize Rose bush! Prune in early spring to about 6-8 inches above the crown to encourage thick, full new growth each year.

  • Full Sun For The Most Blooms
  • Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Regular Moisture Needs
  • Mulch The Root System Well
  • Deadhead For More Blooms & Prune Early Spring

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Rose Trees need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you can provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Roses Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
