Oh, Blue Girl Hybrid Tea Rose (Rosa 'Blue Girl'), you've stolen our hearts! This Rome Gold Award winner truly takes it to the next level. Everything about this Rose is enchanting - especially the spectacular color!
The silvery-lavender color is so unusual. The color changes in different lighting, and as each bloom ages. They will eventually mature into a head-turning, steel gray-blue when fully open. You'll never, ever get bored with this dynamic variety. Its upright habit calls to you to study its impeccable blooms. Watch in amazement as the icy tones of this beauty reveal themselves to you, slowly unfurling from high-centered blooms that are five and a half inches tall.
Opening from dark buds, the huge flowers have a true silvery-lavender blue finish. The classic high-pointed petals glaze into an incredibly rare gray-blue as the flower ages! Throughout this entire enchanting color shift, the dark green foliage sets the stage and adds a vibrant backdrop for the blooms! They'll open slowly, and last and last for you. Held aloft on long stems, these are perhaps the perfect Rose for cutting. This beautiful Rose is used in many wedding arrangements.
The breathtakingly fresh color is a wonderful achievement in Rose breeding. But the Blue Girl isn't done knocking your socks off! We haven't even mentioned the fragrance - which smells like a lushly layered Lilac and Rose scent imparted upon each of this Rose's 35 to 40 petals! Some say there's even a hint of fruity fragrance too!
Blue Girl Hybrid Tea is disease resistant and a vigorous, continuous bloomer. They have long, strong stems, too, making them perfect cut flowers for jaw-dropping arrangements and cut flower displays. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4 through 9, these are tidy 3-4 foot tall shrubs that spread 2-3 feet wide.
Just like a little black dress, a Hybrid Tea Rose can be dressed up or down! Pair Blue Girl with other cool-toned Rose beauties, such as Pope John Paul II or Violet's Pride™, or take a walk on the wild side with a deep purple pairing such as the Intrigue Rose. Your butterflies will feel underdressed when they drop by to sip the nectar!
She will work beautifully in a contemporary setting, or formal beds, and add high style to a minimalist planting. Place these supermodels against a shaggy backdrop of Juniper or the rougher texture of a Rugosa Rose. You might be very surprised how much each plant gains by visually playing off each other.
These will be the show-stoppers in your Moon Garden, must-haves for the Rose garden and cut flower displays. Combine them with perennials, adorn a cottage garden or enhance the mixed border with shining blooms! For soothing combos mix Blue Girl with white, lavender, pinks, and peaches. Or, try clashing with reds and yellows or plants with near-black foliage for a fresh, modern take both in the garden or in the vase!
Skirt Blue Girl with flowering groundcovers to enhance them further, and create a raised berm in your front yard to highlight this unique spectacle a bit higher! Place these beauties where they'll deliver maximum impact in your landscape. You'll want to both see and smell them.
Hybrid Tea Roses make a wonderful grouping, especially when used in an odd-numbered group of 3, 5 or 7. Create a curved garden bed around your patio, so you won't miss a moment! They look great in a small informal bed, or in formal rows encased in a bed surrounded by a sheared Boxwood hedge.
Hybrid Tea Roses produce the most flowers in well-drained, rich soils in full sun. Roses also appreciate having a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch covering the soil to keep the foliage clean and disease-free, while holding moisture more consistently, and insulating the roots. Watering your Roses should be done at the soil level, keeping the leaves dry for best results. Water regularly, especially throughout the hot summer months. Provide good air circulation and a location with the morning sun to dry their leaves.
