Only an original and extremely talented rose could be dedicated to Jean Cocteau! Thus, the JEAN COCTEAU rose combines generous flowering and abundance from May-June until frost, with regular vegetation and infallible robustness. In the garden like in a story, this delicate rose will charm you with its many talents. From the end of spring to the beginning of winter, the JEAN COCTEAU rose blooms again and again in profusion and in continuous rhythm.
The flowers, grouped in bunches of 2 to 7 flowers, open their petals of 25 to 27, in fuzzy corollas with unique and special relief. This original rose shape is further accentuated by the new color called "inverted two-tone". In fact, the obverse (front side) of the petal, a deep ocher orange with a hint of pink, is lighter than the reverse. Once fully open, the flowers offer a view of their stamens that bees and other insects enjoy visiting.
The JEAN COCTEAU rose proves to be a force of nature! With a vigorous and balanced vegetation, it forms an elegant bush that reaches about 80-90 cm in height. Its beautiful bright green leaves benefit from excellent disease resistance.
A hand of God for a garden without treatment! Presented at international rose competitions, the JEAN COCTEAU rose did not go unnoticed and collected a fine crop of awards and medals.
