Top Gun™

The Best of the Best. That's a true statement knowing that the new variety has excellent 'DISEASE RESISTANCE' to major rose diseases. Just this fact alone makes it a very good new introduction for the landscape. But, with the added resistance to Rose Rosette Disease, it's truly the Best of the Best. In multiple years of trials throughout the Eastern United States, Top Gun came out standing proud untouched by Rose Rosette where most other varieties showed symptoms of infection. That's quite amazing! The top-ranked variety is also a high performer when it comes to bloom production. The rounded bushy well-behaved plant produces vigorous stems ending with clusters of long-lasting dark red flowers. For top flowering performance in the garden and outstanding clean foliage in most climates, look no further than Top Gun!
