Roses In Alphabetical Order ‘T’

‘Tamora’ Roses (Shrub, Introduced – 1983)’Tamora’ rose is easy-to-grow,  and outstanding performers.
This rose produces fragrant, fully double rosettes in shades of apricot with pink-orange shadings on a slow-growing, compact shrub that flourishes as a container plant or in the front of a border. Since ‘Tamora’ performs best in warmer climates and thrives in dry conditions, this rose is especially at home in the Southwest.
‘Tausendschön’ Roses (Climber, Introduced – 1906)’Thousand beauties” is the translation of this rose’s name, but that is an understatement. In fact, a well-grown specimen of this plant offers far more beauties than that when it buries itself under myriad clusters of small pompon blossoms for several weeks in early summer. These blossoms open a deep rose pink with white centers, then fade to a blushing white. As it’s nearly thornless, this rose is a good choice for a pillar or arch in a high-traffic area. Use it as a living trellis for a clematis to extend the season of bloom. Or let ‘Tausendschön’ rose sprawl and use it as a ground cover.
‘Tempo’ Roses (Climber, Introduced – 1975)An early bloomer, this is one of the first climbers to come into flower in the garden. Its deep red, high-centered, very double flowers are 3 to 4 inches across and bloom in clusters all summer on tidy, 8-foot plants. Flowers are long lasting and slightly fragrant. Dark green leaves are large, glossy, and very disease resistant.
‘The Fairy’ Roses (Polyantha, Introduced – 1932)A delicate-looking but tough little plant, ‘The Fairy’ rose is the only rose of this class recommended for northern gardens. This cultivar begins flowering late in the season, but after the first blossoms open, it remains in bloom more or less continuously until cold weather arrives  in late fall, long after most other roses have passed their peak. Its low, arching habit adapts well to the front of a border, or plant in large groups for a grand effect. ‘The Fairy’ rose is often sold as a standard, or tree rose.
‘Thérèse Bugnet’ Roses (Hybrid Rugosa, Introduced – 1950)This Canadian rose has the hardiness one expects of a rose that thrives practically up into the Canadian North. But ‘Thérèse Bugnet’ offers much more than just persistence. This rose bears clusters of pointed, deep pink buds in spring that open into bouquets of large, ruffled, double flowers of bright lilac-pink. After a prolonged first flush of flowers, this rose re-blooms at a more modest pace, but reliably, until the end of the growing season. Its crop of hips is sparse, but ‘Therese Bugnet’ offers as consolation a fine fall foliage show, as its blue-green foliage turns a rich red. This rose is incredibly hardy, flowers for weeks, and is friendly as a cut flower because the upper part of the stems is almost thorn-less.
‘Tiffany’ Roses (Hybrid Tea, Introduced – 1954)Long and pointed, the buds of ‘Tiffany’ have a beautiful, classic form; they open to 4- to 5-inch double blossoms whose soft rose pink petals blend to yellow at their base. Flowers are produced singly and in clusters over a long season; they are high centered and bear a strong, sweet, fruity fragrance. The foliage is dark green and glossy.
‘Tiffany’ is vigorous and easy to grow. Tall and upright in habit, this rose is effective in beds and borders and makes an exceptional, long-lasting cut flower. Performing best in warm climates, this rose is more disease resistant than most hybrid teas.
‘Tipper’ Roses (Miniature, Introduced – 1987)Named for Tipper Gore, wife of Senator Albert Gore, Jr., of Tennessee, ‘Tipper’ rose has 1 1/2-inch, high-centered flowers of medium pink with 20 to 25 petals. Blooms usually appear one to a stem, although occasionally they will cluster. Plants grow 22- to 30- inches high.
‘Touch of Class’ Roses (Hybrid Tea, Introduced – 1984)This rose is a favorite among rosarians, who win ribbons at rose shows with its perfectly formed, high-centered blossoms. But though this rose is a star performer, it is not a prima donna. In fact, ‘Touch of Class’ makes a good garden plant. It flowers consistently throughout the season, bearing large, double, medium pink blooms shaded with coral and cream. Only in fragrance is it somewhat lacking: ‘Touch of Class’ rose offers only a slight perfume.
‘Tournament of Roses’ Roses (Grandiflora, Introduced – 1989)Flowers of ‘Tournament of Roses’ are shades of pink and beige with a darker pink reverse that fades to coral pink with age. The double blooms are high-centered, 4 inches across, and lightly fragrant. They usually appear in small sprays of three to six flowers. Leaves are large, glossy, and dark green, and canes bear large prickles.
This rose is moderately vigorous and has an upright habit. This rose performs best maintained as a 5-foot shrub, although it will grow taller if allowed, and is suitable for beds and borders. Flowers are borne freely and are long-lasting, but may not be ideal for cutting because stems can be short or weak. It is highly disease resistant.
‘Toy Clown’ Roses (Miniature, Introduced – 1966)1 1/2-inch flowers with 12 to 20 petals are white with red edges. Pointed buds open into high-centered flowers that spread out flat. Spreading 10- to 14-inch plants have dark green, red-tinged leaves.
‘Tropicana’ Roses (Hybrid Tea, Introduced – 1960)The 4- to 5-inch double flowers of ‘Tropicana’ are bright orange-red and fruity with fragrance. Buds are very large and pointed. Borne singly, the blooms are high centered, becoming cup shaped as they mature. They appear over a lengthy season, and their color holds up well even in hot weather. Foliage is glossy and dark green.
Plants are vigorous, upright, and bushy. The vibrant color of its flowers can be stunning in beds and borders but is difficult to blend with soft pastel shades. The blooms are excellent for cutting. Plants are prone to mildew.
‘Trumpeter’ Roses (Floribunda, Introduced – 1977)’Trumpeter’ rose has brilliant, long-lasting orange to scarlet flowers with 35 to 40 ruffled petals and a mild fragrance. The glossy green foliage is quite disease resistant, covering bushy, compact, 2- to 3-foot plants. This is an excellent variety for mass plantings and landscape color
‘Tuscany’ Roses (Gallica, Introduced – prior to 1820)The large semi-double flowers of ‘Tuscany’ rose are dark crimson to deep purple with a velvety texture. Petals are flat and are arranged around prominent yellow stamens, creating a dramatic contrast. Although very fragrant, the flowers are not as heavily scented as some gallica roses. They appear in abundance in spring and do not repeat. Leaves are small and dark green.
The vigorous plants have a tidy, rounded form and are well suited to small gardens. The intense colors of the flowers make them spectacular in bloom. They are winter-hardy and tolerant of summer heat and humidity.
