‘Signature’ is one of the top ten exhibition roses in the country since its introduction in 1996. Its huge, high-centered blooms, 5 to 6 inches in diameter on a long stems about 18 inches long make it the favorite of exhibitors across the country. The intense coloration of the bloom which is deep pink with cream at the bottom of the petals looks stunning. It has sharply pointed buds which open into perfectly formed rose of 30 to 40 petals count, complemented with dark, thick leathery foliage. Except for the fact that it has very light fragrance, it could be the rose you’ve been waiting for the exhibition table and garden display. Plant it in the garden in a group of three with some blue perennial like salvia or dephinum and the effect is quite dazzling.
