Royal Heritage™ Strain Lenten Rose
Triumphs over heat, humidity, and even drought!
Uniquely superior for its wide range of sumptuous colors (purple, red, near-black, white, green, pink, and even yellow--each individual plant only displays one bloom color) captured by 2-inch flowers with overlapping petals. In our garden the strain produces flowers for nearly 5 months, from winter through spring. Cut and floated, they make an excellent centerpiece, lasting up to two weeks.
A gardener's "dream plant" -- very permanent, very low maintenance, very disease free, very pest free! Easy to establish from our vigorous container stock. Over the years each will develop into sturdy, long-lived clumps 18 to 24 inches high and 2 to 3 feet across. Totally tolerant of heat and humidity, and even periods of drought, if given well-drained, moisture-retentive soil. Can even thrive in clay! Zones 4-8.
