Big Momma Rose from Conard-Pyle Co.

West Grove, PA — The Conard-Pyle Company recently announced its 2013 introductions:

Popcorn Drift® is the newest addition to the Drift groundcover series. Drift Roses have many of the same great characteristics as The Knock Out Family of Roses, but are much smaller in habit. Like the other Drift Roses, Popcorn Drift is has excellent disease resistance and floriferousness.

Francis Meilland™ is the 2013 AARS winner. This tall Hybrid Tea rose with a very large bloom, good exhibition form and strong fragrance is a multiple award winner in Europe. It is named to commemorate the centenary of Francis Meilland’s birth and to honor Conard-Pyle Co.’s historic relationship with Meilland International, the breeder behind the historic Peace rose and Drift series.

Look-A-Likes™ Hydrangeful is a unique new hybrid shrub rose with dense flower clusters of small red blooms with a white eye that almost look like a hydrangea. Like Drift Roses, this variety is low-growing and easy to maintain.

The Eyeconic™ series of Hulthemia roses is an exciting addition to Conard-Pyle’s lineup. For 2013, the company is introducing two new varieties — Eyeconic™ Pomegranate Lemonade and Eyeconic™ Melon Lemonade. This series grows best in the Western United States.

Cinnamon Dolce™ has brick red petals dusted with pink spots and is very fragrant.  This variety needs the dry heat of the West to thrive.

Raspberry Cream Twirl™ is the first striped climber to have a true modern rose exhibition-type flower.

Big Momma™ is a big, pink, very fragrant Hybrid Tea that is great for cutting.

All of the roses listed will be available to consumers in 2013. For more information visit www.conard-pyle.com.
