Breeder's notes:
Hopie Girl is a non phototropic exhibition Hybrid tea. With proper pruning it can easily reach well over 6 feet in warmer climates. Fall is the best time of year for this rose.
Notes:
Removal of the terminal bud when it first begins to develop will result in beautiful hybrid tea sprays of 3 to 6 blooms. Hopie Girl consistently produces blooms with exhibition form, especially in the Fall.
