October 2016: Halloween
Rosa Halloween was hybridized by Arthur P. Howard in 1962 and introduced in the U.S. by Great Western Rose Company.
Although it is classified as a yellow blend, the blooms of this lovely hybrid tea display a pallet of colors ranging from yellow, orange, peach, pink, red, and mauve. Its fragrance is reminiscent of peaches and apples and its bloom form is somewhat loose with ruffled petals. Celebrate this month with every child’s favorite holiday: Halloween!
