Wildfire™ is a generously flowered hybrid tea rose that sets the late-spring to early-summer garden ablaze with brilliant color! Classic yellow, pointed, ovoid buds edged in orange open into orange double blooms accented with a glowing yellow reverse. Between 26 and 40 thick, velvety petals and long stems make this an excellent, long-lasting cut rose.

These radiant 4-inch blooms appear singly, for the most part, continuing throughout the entire season, and standing out like balls of flame against the glossy, dark green foliage. Reaching a height of 4 to 5 feet and a width of 3 to 4 feet, Wildfire™ is a very vigorous grower, and although its blooms only have a very slight musky fragrance, their beauty makes them a valuable addition to the sunny garden! It can also be placed in a large patio container, so you can enjoy the blossoms anywhere you choose.

Removing spent blooms will encourage more to arise. This rose performs best in average, well-drained soil in full sun. Prune Wildfire™ in spring, removing old canes and dead or diseased wood and cutting back any canes that cross. Gardeners in warmer climates should cut back the remaining canes by about one third, and those in colder areas may need to prune a bit more.
