Rosa chinensis ‘Oakland’ – “The Oakland Rose”

Rosa chinensis ‘Oakland’ – “The Oakland Rose”

3-4′ x 3-4′ Full Sun May-Sep
Elegantly-simple, old-fashioned, single-flowering Rose whose rosy-pink petals surround prominent golden stamens appears in repeating performances through the summer and into the fall. Discovered in Atlanta, Georgia’s historical Oakland Cemetery and introduced to the gardening world by plantswoman Jane Symmes of Cedar Lane Farm. Sometimes confused with Rosa ‘Nearly Wild’–another single pink Rose variety with a somewhat more compact growth habit than that of “The Oakland Rose.”
