Sexy Rexy

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Trumpeter For those who have never seen Sexy Rexy in all its glory: no this is not an arrangement, it is the plant grown well and blooming its head off! Sexy Rexy is the only rose to be able to perform this trick with quite this much panache.

It takes a lot of energy to create blossoms, so Sexy Rexy must be grown in the best of soils to get results like this. In poor soil, the plant will wither up quickly. And the plant is not entirely immune to fungal disease. But given ideal conditions this rose will blow your mind.

ARS members rate this rose 8.7.
