Heya Rosarians! It’s been a while since I featured a rose from my very own yard and this summer has really made my garden look very vibrant and full of life. Part of that because I have this reliable bloomer in my yard, the Wild Blue Yonder Rose.
This AARS winner has been growing in my yard for 4 years now and it has gotten really tall at almost 5 ft. It’s hard not to notice this Grandiflora because its beauty is simply mesmerizing. Its camellia-like petals and form have a vintage feel and it has a moderate citrus scent. It also has multifaceted colors that start with purple-lavender buds, as well as the center, then it goes into reddish purple once in full bloom.
The blooms are in clusters which make them a yard showstoppers, and they repeatedly bloom throughout the season. It’s a vigorous rose that doesn’t get sick easily, even if I’d miss its regular fertilization and mildew prevention treatment. It also has a bushy form and can grow really tall at 4 to 5 ft, but it adapts well to regular trimming.
The Wild Blue Yonder rose is hardy in zone 6 and up, it requires deep regular watering and regular fertilization with treatments from molds and aphids. Other than that, this is a beautiful non-fussy rose with different tones of reddish-purple-lavender in each bloom that grows in clusters. The saturated color of this rose will truly enhance the beauty of every yard.
The Wild Blue Yonder Rose is available at Regan Nursery
