Chi Long Han Zhu Rose

December 9, 2016 Back to Picks >


Also called ‘White Pearl in Red Dragon’s Mouth’, this ancient garden rose is tough as nails, blooms cheerfully through rain, heat and the occasional winter freeze. Being a China Rose, it is long-lived, becoming more dense over time. New growth may have touches of purple, dark red or bronze. Heat tolerant, drought-resistant �this rose can fill almost any landscaping niche and do so without fertilizers, sprays or deadheading. China Roses do not go dormant in the winter �they are inspired by winter rains to bloom in generous masses. China roses prefer minimal pruning.

Overall size can reach 3’x3′.
