Brandy Hybrid Tea Rose
Hybrid Tea Rose ‘Brandy’
This rose once again made it on to the replacement list and entered the garden with a great flush of flowers. One thing you will notice about this rose is the size of the flowers. They are huge. The color is outstanding and gets better as the buds open up. The somewhat mild fragrance is also nice. ‘Brandy’ is not shy and turns into a nice, sturdy rose bush. It is a prolific bloomer and flowers through the season. Overall it gets an 8.5-9 (out of 10) on Chris’s little scale of roses.
The rose garden has perked up nicely but still won’t be where I want it on Memorial Day Weekend. Those couple of late frosts really did some damage to the tender new growth. The roses are kind of shaking that off now and starting to grow in earnest.
