Francis Meilland Rose
Disease Resistant Rose with Outstanding Blooms
The Francis Meilland is a hybrid tea rose prized for its large blooms and disease resistance. Plant several in your rose garden, or in any sunny spot in your yard where you have a showcase for its impressive bloom.
Your Francis Meilland has a statuesque form that is a perfect match for its extensive bloom and substantial bouquet. The color of the blooms is a subtle light shell pink that transitions to a whiter shade as it ages. The 5-inch, mid-season blossom is very full (40+ petals), and certainly a stunning vision amid the glossy, dark-green foliage. In fact, the exquisite bloom is the reason that the Francis Meilland is an award-winning plant.
As if the appearance of your Francis Meilland isn’t impressive enough, the fragrance is also a head-turner. Anyone passing by will feel compelled to stop and sample your rose’s exquisite bouquet. The scent is very strong, with a fruity ambiance reminiscent of citrus. You can bring that same delicious scent indoors as the Francis Meilland makes a durable cut flower as well.
Francis Meilland was named for the renowned breeder of the Peace rose. It’s certainly a special rose and a must-have for any rose gardener. The above average disease resistant nature of the plant makes it a terrific choice for even the novice gardener. Whether experienced or new to roses, the Francis Meilland is certainly a terrific choice for your garden today.
