Ruby Red Hybrid Tea Rose.  (PPAF) Var: MElzilena Just like Dorothy's slippers, there's a little something special about this new hybrid tea. Long stems perfect for cutting are clothed in a lovely gown of green, glossy foliage and they hold their blooms high for all to see. The petals are the perfect shade of ruby red and the flowers are produced in such abundance that you'll almost always have some for beautiful bouquets. Vigorous plants have an upright, full and bushy form that looks so great in a container, you would almost think it's a shrub. All that's missing is fragrance and this rose would be a dream come true. Displays excellent disease resistance on the West coast. Grown own root. Height 54-60.  Petals 18.
