Strike It Rich

Grandiflora - Deep golden yellow spun with orange-pink

 

2007 AARS winner.  You’re in the money…if you love spicy fragrance, loads of bloom & super-long elegant buds of gold polished with rosy pink.  The long-lasting sparkling yellow-orange tones of this award winner are rich & opulent enough to bring out the gold digger in any gardener.  But it doesn’t take a stash of expensive chemicals to keep this good lookin’ girl happy in the landscape.  The natural disease resistance & strong vigor do the deed.  Very dark green leaves & unusual red stems set off the many showy clusters of blossoms.  Hit pay dirt with Strike It Rich!
