Gardeners' Notes:

Yes, Tiffany is a beautiful color and smells great. The bush is very resistant to blackspot, but I've had some issues with mildew in the spring. Also, the blooms open fairly quickly and flop open loosely. It's not a bad plant, and I just think there's better available. The growth habit is STRAIGHT UP. It's the most vertical growing rose I've encountered.

Well was I happy to find that the rose that I have been babying in a pot on the sidewalk outside my front door, was a Tiffany. I have bought about 30 ORR in the last 10 years, some did really well and others not so well. We have terrible clay soil here and I have had to replace most of it and this year raised the beds so I could get my roses to do better. Tiffany is one of my favorite roses. I love the pink rose with the tinge of yellow in the bottom of the rose petals. I does take a while to get these own root roses to get up to a nice size but when they do they are great, hardy roses. A great surprise for me. Made the days work in the garden worth it.

Just a tough , tough rose. It is disease resistant offers gorgeous gorgeous huge blooms you can smell a mile away. In Colorado we Rosarians are blessed with dry , sunny long summer days , lots of wind, completely unpredictable weather that is 80 one hour and frosting the next, that can make rose growing difficult, but not for,Tiffany. My rose bush is 11 years old , the mother of at least 20 plants from cuttings, and is the best of the 32 varieties I have. Tall, clean, and a non stop display of blooms when others go semi-dormant in the brutally hot dry summer days. Love this rose, you will be rewarded for many years .

I love this rose! It has a wonderful fragrance and the blooms are such a beautiful shade of pink. My bush is in it's first year and it's competing with other cultivators in their second season for size. It's been covered in blooms for over a month with no sign of letting up!

This is a one of the hardiest of Hybrid Tea roses and it has a wonderful fragrance to boot. My wife and I spotted this flower as we were walking in Mrs. Butchardt's rose garden. I've never seen so many beautiful roses in one spot. We only have a handful of roses here but are delighted with this one in particular.

One of my favorites, profuse blooms, lovely scent. It took me three years to find one locally.
