Jilly Jewel is clothed in dark green foliage that sets off masses of frosty, ice pink blooms. Long buds open into perfect, fragrant exhibition roses. The plant is upright and extremely vigorous, producing an abundance of both one-to-a-stem blooms and attractive sprays. This variety is used in cut flower production around the world. One would be hard pressed to find a rose, regardless of type, that could produce more bloom.
[Also introduced as Pearl in New Zealand, this was one of the new varieties added to the RINZ Rose Display Trial at the Auckland Regional Botanic Gardens in 1999.]
