Rose of the Week...Tiffany Rose

The rose of the week is the Tiffany rose.  I planted two of them as bare roots this past winter.  One is a great deal smaller than the other despite similar conditions.   It's an award winning rose by the AARS (my understanding).  
The other rose I have is not very tall...but this one has grown to about 4 1/2 feet.

It's blooming rather profusely.  I did give it a full does of Bayer Rose care.

The blooms are very large and elegant.  You can see it's size in comparison to my hand.

Right now it's blooming profusely which is why I chose it.

It is a hybrid tea rose.  The web reads that it grows up to 4 feet but my experience has been given enough water...roses can grow taller.

Web reads that is hardy from zones 4 to 9.  It does have a fragrance.  

I have read that it can get bushy, but this one seems to be upright.  It has bloomed fairly often.

Beautiful pink. It will probably get bushier next year.

You learn a lot from those sites that discuss roses: Parentage:
Seed: Charlotte Armstrong
Pollen: Girona

and someone wrote that the patent has expired, so it is okay to root pieces of it for whatever purpose.
