Rosa 'Electron' (Hybrid Tea Rose)

Rose 'Electron', Rosa 'Mullard Jubilee', Hybrid Tea Roses, Shrub Roses


Noted for its mesmerizing color, Rosa 'Electron' is a particularly luminous Hybrid Tea rose with very large, 5 in. across (12 cm), full (32-40 petals), high-centered, bright cherry pink flowers. Borne mostly solitary, the brilliant flowers exude a mild to strong, old rose, spice fragrance. They bloom continuously from spring to fall. A compact, bushy, well-branched shrub, armed with thorns and clothed in glossy, dark green leaves which provide an ideal backdrop for its summer-long floral display. One of the cleanest, hardiest and most intense pink roses available. Very disease resistant.

  • 1973 All-America Rose Selection - the most prestigious rose award in the USA.
  • Grows up to 4-5 ft. tall (120-150 cm) with a 2-3 ft. spread (60-90 cm).
  • An excellent choice for beds and borders or containers. Great cut flowers.
  • Best grown in full sun, in rich, fertile with adequate moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
  • Bred by Samuel Darragh McGredy IV (1962).
