Hannah GordonNamed for the Scottish actress, Hannah Gordon, this upright rose can be tall and is a good specimen for the back of the border. Classified as a pink blend, the medium sized flowers are a combination of white with cherry red edges on the petals. In cool weather the edging is thick but becomes finer with hot weather. The flowers are borne singly or in clusters of up to nine. At first they have the shape of a hybrid tea but change as they open when the petals develop a wavy edge and reveal the golden stamens.  The leaves are bronze at first but become dark green and glossy. ‘Hannah Gordon’ is a popular exhibition rose.
