A top exhibition rose in South Africa.

Bush is healthy & grows vigorously into a neat specimen clothed with deep green, glossy foliage.
Alan Knott-Craig has been responsible for creating a rose paradise at the Vodaworld campus in Midrand.
This hybrid tea rose, named after him, is a powerful performer, growing 2m high with pickable, warm orange blooms. The half open blooms have a good exhibition shape & long vase life.

Shapely, medium sized, pickable blooms of bright vermilion which intensifies to burnt orange as the blooms are exposed
to the sun.
The bush has a neat, upright growth habit & is covered with glossy green leaves.
A good cut flower.
Enormous, unchanging brilliant velvet red blooms was sufficient reason to introduce this rose! Blooms also display
the bi-colour splendour of luminous red spilling over its silver reverse, softening the bi-colour effect. One bloom in a vase is breathtakingly beautiful.
The bush grows very tall & produces its long stems sparingly. Glossy foliage; prolific bearer.
Long, pointed buds open into large, shapely blooms; the cream-yellow colour on the reverse of the petals is dominated
by a strong apricot colour on the inside of the petals.
The plant grows vigorously with long stems; slightly sensitive to mildew.
The spirit of this rose with its shapely, medium sized buds of a lively blend of silver, purple and lilac was found soothing to the parents who lost a baby daughter.

A superlative rose! This bloom will stop the traffic!
Named after Andrea Stelzer, who won the Miss South Africa title in 1985 and three years later the title of Miss Germany.
To select this rose was an easy task. This clear pink rose, with its extremely long stems, has large pointed blooms. The stems are 1m long. To view a bed with hundreds of stems, each carrying one perfectly shaped bud or bloom, is a breathtaking sight! It is quite amazing to watch the long-pointed buds develop from stage to stage. Perfectly shaped, they reveal unflawed beauty as their firm petals reflex whilst the sharply pointed centre maintains its shape throughout.
When planted closely together, the narrow upright bushes will form tall hedges, providing an inexhaustible supply of quality cut-flowers fit for a florist. The glossy foliage is mildew-resistant. However, during rainy spells it is advisable to spray preventatively for black spot.
The first blooms were chosen as Champion Rose at an autumn rose show and I predict that this rose, with its charm and its elegance, will remain a firm favourite with judges for years to come.
