BLACK BEAUTY - Hybrid Tea Rose

Hold your horses! Here's an oustanding rose for gardeners in search of the blackest of flowers. The Black Beauty rose was introduced by Delbard of France in 1973. Like most of the "black" roses, they appear ebony black in the bud stage and then open to reveal a rich scarlet. The dark, velvety back of the petal  feels soft and silky to the touch.
Black Beauty is a perfect rose for cutting with large petals and long stems and is quite striking in a vase with a white hybrid tea like Pope John Paul II or Secret's Out. Perhaps, the only downside to the rose is that it doesn't have much fragrance; however it makes up for this with continuous blooming.
It is not usually found in garden shops, but may be mail-ordered from companies like EuroDesert Roses. Use this discount code to receive a 15% discount when ordering from EuroDesert Roses: GLEUROSES
