Picture of Tiffany bush on July 5
Beautiful. Stop tempting me to buy more!
Sara Ann...Tiffany is my favorite rose,and I grow 135 roses! Thank you for this beautiful rose picture Lesley
Susan and Lesley - Thank you. I love Tiffany too. It's a very good rose and the fragrance is wonderful!
They look like two completely different roses!! Love the October color. Why so different? Is it from the heat of summer that they bleach out?
Mzstitch - I love the October color too. They do look like different roses. I do believe the pale color is a result of the heat and sunlight, we were having some really hot weather about then, of course that is pretty typical around here. Usually the bloom color is somewhere in between.
You can really see how the fall temps amp up the colors!
Witherspoon roses ( grafted bareroots) has the pale colored sport RK Witherspoon.
Tiffany's a great rose. I would never be without it
I can see that my Tiffany is NOT Tiffany. :)
Mine has a form more like Grace (Austin).
That first picture is to die for!! The 2nd one shows a lot of flowers for the size of the bush.
Maybe I should try again.
Yes Seil, the cooler weather really makes a difference in the color. Carol - Tiffany seems like an all-around really good rose. In your zone it would probably be a really lovely color. It bloomed good all season. This last flush was a pleasant surprise, I wasn't expecting it. Kitty - I didn't know RK Witherspoon was a sport of Tiffany, I'll have to check that one out.
Sounds tempting! The above comments make it sound irresistible!! :)
This is a photo of Tiffany I took 25 years ago.
Some things about Tiffany:
1) It is extremely fragrant;
2) It has a very high center, the highest centered HT I have every seen;
3) The color is medium pink fading lighter to the base and the reverse is lighter fading to white and very light yellow at the base;
4) The plant is very tall and vigorous with single blooms on long stems;
5) The foliage is shiny dark green with some resistance to BS and it does not mildew;
6) It is not a strong bloomer and blooms in waves rather than continuously;
7) The blooms are quite long lasting but it fades in the heat although it does not collapse.
I'm sure there are more things but that's all I can think of. And BTW, that shot of Tiffany is one of my best pictures ever and has been reproduced and framed.
Henryinct - That is one beautiful picture of Tiffany, PERFECT!
In my mind TIFFANY serves as a template for what a Hybrid Tea should be. It has all the positives and very few of the negative traits. A classic that belongs in every garden where cut flower roses are highly valued.
Molineux - I would agree with that.
I had no idea about RK Witherspoon- the color is gorgeous! I need it!

Tiffany is a great rose here. Vigorous and hardy without protection. Good bloomer.
The high bloom form makes it special. A great shade of pink with that little blush of soft yellow at the base.
If you're gonna grow HT's....you must have Tiffany!
Harryshoe - Lovely Tiffany blooms. You have beautiful roses.
My Tiffany is the same colour and shape as harryshoe.
The buds are also very attractive.
The coloring reminds me of a reverse of Peace. Those pictures are all beautiful!
Great pictures you guys! I had TIFFANY when I first started growing roses about 24yrs ago. It was huge, and smelled yummy as I recall. I had BEWITCHED on the opposite end of the bed where they were planted. I'm not sure why I don't have either of them now. They must've died or something when (or before) we moved 15yrs ago. I tried replacing both with the cheapie bagged bareroot roses from the big box stores over the yrs. But they always ended up being the wrong rose. Never got around to buying them anywhere else more reliable. Seeing you guys' pics make me miss TIFFANY. It was really a beautiful rose and plant. I remember it being around 5.5ft and 3ft wide. Loaded with beautiful perfect blooms too. I really should try to find one again.
Lynnette - Gorgeous picture. I can only hope that my more established Tiffany roses will be as lovely as yours and harryshoe's this year.

Tiffany is my favorite rose. I will be adding #3 this spring. So happy I ordered anotherÃ¢ÂÂ¦as most of my roses have black canes due to this winter. These pictures are just glorious and I have enjoyed them. Lesley
I have this beautiful Tiffany bush. It had almost 10 buds on it and it was almost ready to bloom.. I couldn't wait.. went out the next day and was doing some work trimming Perfect Moment and looked over and every bloom on my Tiffany bush had been carefully chewed off leaving only 10 stubs blowing in the wind. I just sad down and cried. I am sure the church next door heard my few choice words for the deer that had visited me that night. I may have to move it to the back yard if all the tricks I have tried don't work..
Lela - That is sad, I would cry too! Very frustrating, I'm sure. I Hope your tricks work.
Oh my, all these beautiful Tiffanys! I just got it this spring and it's already proven itself to be a great bloomer!
Seil, that is so gorgeous!
Don't you just love the yellow tinge around the bottom. I try to get that in my pictures. You did a great job of getting the yellow in this picture. Beautiful.. I am still mourning the loss of mine to the deer.. Rose people are crazy. I use to be like this with orchids but got to expensive when I retired.
I have one Tiffany that is still potted that has two long stems with blooms.. I am guarding it with my life. I have put down some kind of blood product, that is suppose to make deer think a deer died there... my dog thinks it is pretty tasty.. I have sprayed with egg, garlic and hot pepper spray.. I am just hoping this will work for the tiffany in the garden. I think Tiffany is my favorite Tea,
Lela - Good luck trying to keep the deer away. I agree about Tiffany, I've seen many blooms of this rose and it is truly gorgeous. The touch of yellow really does add to its beauty. The picture here is my best one so far, it is from my spring flush this year.
What lovely examples of Tiffany. Such a gorgeous rose!
