Be sure to notice the exclamation point at the end of the name because there is a double orange blend hybrid tea by the same name but without the exclamation point. Needless to say, they are very different roses. ‘Fabulous!’ is a white or white blend with large, very full (40-50 petals) flowers that open from long pointed buds and are flat to high centered. The flowers usually remain attractive on the bush or in a vase for 5-6 days so is an asset in beds and make good cut flowers. It is also popular as an exhibition rose. The vigorous plant is tall, upright, and well branched with medium green, glossy, leathery leaves. Although ‘Fabulous!’ has good resistance to rust and mildew it is susceptible to black spot.
