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.
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.
