Sir Thomas Lipton Rugosa Rose

Purchase Your Rose Here

The Name of the Rose - Sir Thomas Lipton (1850-1931) was a millionaire British grocer, yachtsman and entrepreneur. He owned vast coffee, tea and cocoa plantations and introduced the tea bag to consumers. He was knighted by Queen Victoria in 1898.

Although most rugosas disdain our heat and humidity, Sir Thomas Lipton holds up to it quite well. Growth is vigorous and, in sunny locations, you can expect a "bushy" 6' high x 4' wide. It is one of the tallest growing rugosa roses.

Blooms, appearing in early summer and inter-mittantly afterwards, are loose, semi-double, pure white, and fragrant. Foliage is dark green and leathery. Disease resistance is good. Very similar to Blanc Double De Coubert.
