Rosa Sweet Spirit™ (Hybrid Tea Rose)

Rose Sweet Spirit™, Rosa Elegance ® Française, Rosa 'MEIthatie', Grandiflora Roses, Hybrid Tea Roses, Shrub Roses


Rosa Sweet Spirit™ is a strongly scented Hybrid Tea rose boasting large, very double, deep pink flowers, 3.75 in. across (9 cm), packed with 35 petals adorned with mauve reverses. Borne in small clusters, the exquisite blossoms exude a wonderful damask, fruity, sweet fragrance. Blooming in flushes from spring to early fall, they stand out against the lush foliage of matte, dark green leaves. This bushy, upright shrub rose shows increased resistance to black spot and performs very well in hot, humid climates. Perfect for beds, borders, or as a flowering hedge. A great rose for cutting too.

  • American Garden Rose Selections Award, American Rose Society Award.
  • Grows up to 3-4 ft. tall (90-120 cm) and 3 ft. wide (90 cm).
  • An excellent choice for beds and borders, containers or as a flowering hedge. Stunning when mass-planted. Excellent cut flowers.
  • Best grown in full sun, in rich, fertile with adequate moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Propagate by hardwood cuttings in autumn or by chip budding in summer.
  • 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 Alain Meilland (1940-....) (France, before 2017). Bred by Meilland International (France, before 2018).
