Yellow is always a colour that brightens up any garden and for the middle of winter, our featured rose is one of the best new roses to come onto the market in recent years in New Zealand.
‘Glorious’ is well named with large, well formed blooms of clear yellow produced on strong stems. They last well and are good for picking. There is some fragrance to enjoy from the blooms. Medium growing in the garden, glossy large foliage compliments the blooms well and it is a healthy variety. It was ranked 5th on the list of most healthy roses by New Zealand Rose Society members in 2015. ‘Glorious’ is ideal to grow as a bush or standard rose and is a welcome addition to the range of yellow roses.
Bred in Holland by Peter Illsink, it won the Best Hybrid Tea award and was also crowned overall New Zealand Rose of the Year at the New Zealand Rose of the Year trials in Hamilton. A superb rose and one bound to be grown in gardens for many years to come.
