All-American Rose Selections (AARS) 1977Vigorous and disease resistant, this award-winning hybrid tea has been wowing rose lovers for decades with its striking bicolor blooms, intoxicating fragrance, and fantastic garden performance.Double Delight was an AARS in 1977, and its no wonder to anyone whos grown it or simply seen it. Starting out as attractive urn-shaped buds, the blooms open up to 6 inches, revealing about 35 to 45 creamy white petals brushed with deep, rich red. And as stunning as the flowers are, theyre just as fragrant, perfuming the garden (or your home) with a strong sweet and spicy aroma youre going to love. The long, sturdy, 16- to 20-inch stems are perfect for cutting, which is great because you will want to bring some inside. However, the ones you leave on the shrub will delight in the sunny garden because the red tones refuse to fade, even in punishing summer heat.But the attributes of this rose dont stop there. Even without the sensational blooms, this hybrid tea is a real garden gem. The vigorous shrub grows to 4 feet high and 3 feet wide, offering good branching and covering itself in glossy medium green leaves. Its size makes it compact enough for patio containers, while its overall beauty means its a wonderful selection for inclusion in flowering hedges or even as a standalone accent plant.
