Comments Occasionally a rose cultivar will produce blossoms that are completely stunning at every stage; this is one of them. Bewitched is among the most shapely of the pink high-centered hybrid teas. The buds are long and the petals are very lightly reflexed, scrolling nicely away from the center. In warm climates there can be a hint of yellow or orange near the base of the petals. Thick petals which give it such wonderful form do, nevertheless, release plenty of delicious fragrance. With an ARS rating of 7.7 we expect Bewitched to do pretty well in most gardens without much coddling, although it may not be a good choice where winters are bitterly cold or summers especially muggy. Plant a bed of them and have a perpetual supply of fragrant, long-stemmed roses for cutting.
