All-America Rose Selection Award Winners 2003

Hot Cocoa

Class:  Floribunda

Habit:  The medium tall, rounded and bushy plant grows 3-1/2 feet by 4-1/2 feet.  Hot Cocoa is best planted in groups, or used as an edging.  Plant it with yellow or orange coloured flowers and watch how they show off its unique and novel colour. It will become the centrepiece of the garden.
Disease Resistance:  Excellent
Colour:  True to its name, Hot Cocoa produces                      sensual blooms of brownish-orange with a chocolate haze of velvety smoked tones.  Some say the blooms are “chocolate,” “brick” or “russet” in colour

Cherry Parfait

Class:  Grandiflora

Habit:  A beautiful round, vigorous bushy plant that grows 5 feet by 4 feet.  Easy-to-grow, it’s a perfect companion plant for perennials and shrubs. Cherry Parfait’s abundant and continuous flowering habit produces two to five  blooms per stem.
Disease Resistance:  Excellent
Colour:  Cherry Parfait produces blooms of show-stopping white, edged with red nestled among it’s dense, glossy foliage.
Bloom:  Cherry Parfait’s pointed, medium-sized buds open to reveal cuplike blooms of 35 petals.
Fragrance:  Light

Bloom:  Pointed, shapely buds, open to reveal beautiful double ruffled, four-inch blooms with petal counts of 25 to 30. Hot Cocoa’s super glossy, dark green foliage reflects all its amazing colours.
