All-American Rose Selections Winners 2001 (AARS)

Marmalade Skies

Rose Marmalade Skies

The Beatles once envisioned a world with Marmalade Skies, now gardeners across the country can have their own Marmalade Skies.
Brillant tangerine orange blooms engulf Marmalade Skies from beginning to end of the blooming season. Healthy, medium olive green satiny foliage provides the perfect backdrop for the constant show of colour. The floribunda produces clusters of 5 to 8 blooms -- complete bouquet -- on each strong stem. Oblong buds open to reveal 2 1/2- to3- inch double blooms with 17 to 25 petals. Unlike the flowers in the song that "grow so incredibly high," this compact, round plant grows to 3 feet by 3 feet, making it the perfect rose for a hedge or a stellar addition to any existing rose bed. Marmalade Skies was hybridized by the House of Meilland using a combination of Tamango, Parador and Patricia.
Each AARS winner was evaluated for 15 traits including disease resistance, hardiness, colour and novelty in gardens across the United States for two years. Only truly exceptional roses are awarded AARS honours. The three winners for 2001 were judged to be the best roses overall.
