This highly fragrant rose is a breath of fresh air. With massive blooms and intense salmon coloration, the Tropicana Rose (Rosa ‘Tropicana’) is a superb hybrid tea rose with a list of awards as layered as its petals. It’s no wonder this orange classic has stayed at the top of wishlists for decades.
The Tropicana Rose features an impeccable flower form with pointed petals and a high center. When this vibrant and lively rose blooms, you may want to wear your sunglasses. Each flower comes with the vivid and luminous glow of a tropical sunset.
And this brilliant variety isn’t skimpy when it comes to its bloom count. It flushes with clusters of pinky-orange blooms beginning in late spring and lasting until fall. You will have plenty to spare, so don’t be shy about cutting as many as you please for your flower arrangements.
Deadheading spent blooms will encourage new flowers to develop quicker. Do not prune your Rose in fall or winter, but instead wait until spring just as they start to grow, then trim down all branches to 6-8 inches.
Along with mesmerizing blooms, the Tropicana Rose also features an attractive shrub form. This vigorous grower gets tall but won’t spread too wide. Its full appearance is made even more lovely by its deep green glossy leaves.
Of course, we can’t describe the Tropicana Rose without commenting on its fresh-squeezed scent. That’s right. While many believe this sunny rose earned its name for its fiery flowers, others suggest its citrusy scent is the source of its moniker.
Liven up your formal garden with the glow of several Tropicana Roses. This spectacular rose bush also makes a fantastic foundation planting that the Joneses will envy. Of course, if you want them to stay out of your business, you can always plant a row of Tropicana Roses for an award-winning floriferous hedge.
