The Julia Child Rose is a romantic and lovely addition to any garden. This rose is a Hybrid Tea variety, with a delightful pink and yellow bi-colored bloom. It was named in honor of the renowned chef, Julia Child. The flowers have an old-fashioned look, with a classic rose scent. The blooms of the Julia Child Rose are produced in clusters on long stems and are large, which can grow up to 5 inches in diameter, and have a high petal count. The petals are a deep pink in the center, with a golden yellow edge.
The Julia Child Rose is a hardy rose, suitable for growing in USDA Hardiness Zones 5-9. It prefers full sun to partial shade; and will thrive in any well-drained soil. It is a vigorous grower and can reach up to 8 feet in height. Because of its large size, it will require some pruning and training every now and then, to keep it in shape and encourage more blooms. It will also require regular watering, but it is drought tolerant once established. Deadheading spent blooms will also encourage more blooms. With proper care, the Julia Child Rose will reward you with blooms throughout the summer season and will be an excellent addition to your garden.
