First Prize

Place an order for this rose only if you are able to pick it up at the garden center. We do not ship our roses.  

The top exhibition rose in the U.S. for a decade, First Prize lived up to its name by setting the standard for high-centered classical form. Its huge pointed buds spiral open like a fine ballerina in a costume of shimmering pinks. The large flowers are carried on long stout stems with tough leaves. Established plants give the best bloom in the spring.  (Weeks)
