With the late Summer hot weather in Melbourne we are getting a fine showing of roses in our garden. This is the Rosa 'Tatjana', a fine deep red hybrid tea rose. Bred by Kordes, Germany, it is one of the most magnificent dark red roses which is very easily identified by a slash of white on one of the petals deep inside the bloom.
It is awesomely fragrant, extremely robust and healthy, flowering from season start to end continually. The flowers last well in a vase where the exquisite velvet petals open slowly when picked in bud.
