Requires good winter protection oklahoma rose areas where it goes below freezing in winter, but will still grow 6' canes in a single season, even if it dies back to the ground. I've seen it be even darker, with almost purple overtones. Oklahoma rose can't say enough to recommend this rose! The extremely dark red color and intense sweet fragrance draw a lot of compliments.

I have 18 of these along my fence and they are truly incredible. On Jan 31, , mathlady from Sulphur, OK wrote: Grows close to my home so ambient heat helps. Another member mentioned that it "glows". Fed twice yearly with Rose food.

Fed twice yearly with Rose food. The Oklahoma rose in my garden had no pests, no black spot despite heavy rains all through May and June and no powdery mildew. Loved it so much bought another for the back garden. Growing strong and blooming well. They seem to really appreciate the drainage because after 2 growing seasons in Ohio they had reached 6 feet tall!
Needs to be kept fairly moist though. Flowers non-stop all season, May- October. Black spot is a problem, but I just cut oklahoma rose offending bits and burn. Loved it so much bought another for the back garden. Our soil is mildly alkaline, as the region is limestone-based. The blooms are a deep crimson shade of oklahoma rose, as big as my hand, and the fragrance takes over my kitchen when I put one in the vase. It looks just as regal outside too! I heartily recommend this variety. Gorgeous color on a high-centered, large double bloom. Very strong old-rose oklahoma rose.
Hybrid Tea Rose 'Oklahoma' Rosa. I have 18 of these along my fence and they are truly incredible. One hot day when it didnt get enough moisture it started to wilt but perked right back up with moisture.
The petals make wonderful rose water for use in soaps and lotions and I even make rose-flavoured ice cream from them! Cut hard back end March. Report from the UK. Roots shaded by pots, well watered daily in summer.
