Rosa 'Rio Samba' (Hybrid Tea Rose)

Rose 'Rio Samba', Rosa 'JACrite', Hybrid Tea Roses, Shrub Roses


A carnival of cheerful color, Rosa 'Rio Samba' is a showy Hybrid Tea rose with very large, 5 in. across (12 cm), full, high-centered, bright golden-yellow flowers, adorned with red outer petals. Over time, the red spreads down the petals, often softening to deep pink or orange shades. Opening from long, pointed buds, the glorious blossoms are packed with 25 petals and exude a moderate fragrance. Blooming profusely in flushes from spring to fall, they are borne mostly solitary on long stems, making them ideal for cutting. The foliage of matte, dark green leaves is an ideal backdrop for their summer-long floral display. Bushy, upright, well-branched, this brilliantly colored shrub deserves a spot in the mixed border or in containers.
