Best Friend May 2015



Hybrid Tea

Best Friend’ was released by Meilland International in France in 1997 and released in Australia in 2002, named by the RSPCA to honour the unconditional special friendship that comes from loving a pet.
A stylish, classic rose of great beauty with long straight stems and a lovely rich exotic fruity fragrance.  Awarded no less than five Fragrance Awards from Rose Trials across Europe.
This superb Hybrid Tea is a tall upright bush (1.5m x 1.1m) producing large numbers of bright plum pink classic shaped blooms in flushes throughout the growing season. The bush is covered in bright green healthy foliage and is easy to grow.
This rose is a great performer as a cut flower with a good vase life.
