Fun Facts!

1. Grandiflora Classification: As a grandiflora variety, the Honey Dijon rose shows elegance and grace with its tall, upright growth habit and large, extravagant blooms. Known for its regal presence in the garden, grandifloras like Honey Dijon are prized for their majestic stature and abundant blossoms.

2. Full, Clustered Blooms: Honey Dijon's blooms are a sight to behold, characterized by their fullness and clustering of petals. Each blossom unfurls to reveal layers upon layers of velvety petals, creating a sumptuous and voluminous appearance. The clustered nature of the blooms adds to their visual impact, making them a captivating focal point in any landscape or floral arrangement.

3. Repeat Blooming Habit: One of Honey Dijon's most desirable traits is its propensity for repeat blooming throughout the growing season. This means that after the initial flush of flowers, the plant will continue to produce new blooms in abundance, ensuring a continuous display of color and beauty in the garden. This extended blooming period allows gardeners to enjoy the splendor of Honey Dijon's roses for an extended period.

4. Introduced in 2003: The Honey Dijon rose made its debut in 2003, introduced to the world by famous amateur rose breeder Dr. James Sproul. Since its introduction, it has gained widespread acclaim for its exceptional qualities and unique characteristics. Over the years, it has become a beloved favorite among rose enthusiasts, gathering a dedicated following of admirers.

5. Highly Sought After by Florists: Florists prize the Honey Dijon rose for its exceptional vase life, making it a sought-after choice for floral arrangements and bouquets. The flowers retain their freshness and beauty for an extended period after being cut, allowing florists to create stunning displays that last. Additionally, Honey Dijon's clustered blooms and attractive coloring make it a versatile option for a wide range of floral designs and occasions.

6. Fruity Fragrance: One of the most beautiful qualities of the Honey Dijon rose is its delightful fruity fragrance. The scent of Honey Dijon's blooms is often described as sweet and aromatic, with hints of citrus and spice. This alluring fragrance adds an extra dimension of sensory pleasure to the garden, enticing pollinators and delighting passersby with its intoxicating aroma.

7. Unique Honey-Neutral Coloring: Honey Dijon's coloring is truly unique, defying conventional expectations with its subtle yet captivating hues. The petals exhibit a delicate blend of honey and neutral tones, with hints of apricot, shell and amber adding depth and warmth to the overall color palette. This distinctive coloring sets Honey Dijon apart from other roses, making it a standout choice for those seeking something truly special.

8. Parentage: The Honey Dijon rose traces its lineage to two esteemed parent varieties: Stainless Steel and Singin' in the Rain. These parentage endows Honey Dijon with the best traits of both cultivars, including vigor, disease resistance, and, of course, exceptional beauty. Stainless Steel contributes its silver-toned blooms, while Singin' in the Rain imparts its vigorous growth habit and prolific flowering.
