A floribunda that's highly resistant to black spot and powdery mildew here in Boston where black spot pressure is high. Vigorous and a prolific bloomer even without fungicide here.

Flowers are large (4"), 25 petals, pale apricot pink aging to cream/white, in small clusters. Classic hybrid tea form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season. Compact habit.

Hardy to Z5.

I have had success with Pretty Lady in my garden despite record summer rainfall, followed by record winter cold, followed by near-drought in the early part of the spring. Initially potted her, where she did very well, but she outgrew that pot so I planted her in the ground in early June of this year, after the first flush of blooms had subsided. She took to that well and is in bloom again. Slight fragrance, but her shape, health and overall habit make her a favorite all the same. The only rose that equals her for rebloom in my garden is the Borderer.

Yes this is a heavy bloomer & disease proof BUT the flowers (at least in my garden) only last about a day. It does not make a good cutting rose & needs constant deadheading.

Healthy rose with nice flushes. My Pretty Lady tends to be more white than pink flowered, I believe due to being in full sun from sunrise to sunset.

This rose is very disease resistant. It blooms well, the blooms are lovely and they make great cut flowers. It's hardy in zone 5 too.
