I am so excited to share my Beverly Hybrid Tea rose with you. It is a true beauty.
This is a Kordes rose and Kordes roses are known for winter hardiness, disease resistance and beauty! Many are full petaled, with the old fashion form and fragrance. I have several Kordes roses in my garden and they have lived up to their reputation! More about those later.
Beverly’s blooms are so very pretty right from the beginning bud stage to fully open. The foliage is also amazing — almost looks unreal
I have had this rose for 3 years and it rarely has any sign of disease. (Actually I have 5 of them.)
This is one that will hold up very well in a vase for you too. The front rose in this vase from last summer is Beverly!
A TRUE WINNER
At the 2013 Biltmore International Rose Trials, Beverly was a big winner, winning the award for Best Hybrid Tea and the coveted Most Fragrant Rose award.

I just received three beautiful roses from Chamblee Nursery–Aloha, Belinda’s Dream and Carefree Beauty. Two of these lovelies are considered Earth Kind roses.
Earth-Kind is a special designation given to select rose cultivars by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service through the Earth-Kind landscaping program. It is based on the results of extensive research and field trials and is awarded only to those roses demonstrating superior pest tolerance, combined with outstanding landscape performance.

I had the great pleasure of seeing Belinda’s Dream in all her glory in the Biltmore Rose Garden a few weeks ago. (Read more about that here.) This rose had first been recommended to me by Peggy Martin as her favorite rose … especially for those new to growing roses. I am not new to growing roses but I just had to have this lovely rose! Wouldn’t you?
