Teasing Georgia™

Type: David Austin

A yellow 4-5" rose (petals 50+) of delicate beauty. The flowers are of a particularly pleasing cupped formation. The center petals are in the form of a rich deep yellow while the outer petals fall back and fade to pale yellow, providing a most pleasing two-tone effect on a continual blooming bush. The growth is strong but gracefully displaying the flowers nicely. A pleasant tea rose fragrance. Winner of the Henry Edland Medal in 2000 for the most fragrant variety in the RNRS Trials.

Magnificent RoseReview by GAR
I have owned a Teasing Georgia rose in northern Delaware and now in western Alabama. It has never failed in either place to give me such happiness and joy. The roses are are good sized, flagrant, beautiful in color and are healthy in all types of weather. I would advise that you will need some space for it to grow. It will not be a small rose bush. Very easy to grow. (Posted on 4/10/2018)
Love those petals!Review by Dorzaun
I am in love with David Austin roses! Have never been disappointed in them...all those wonderful petals and so fragrant! This yellow is just a total delight from its bud to its bright color and delicate fragrance. Not my first Heirloom, but I am always amazed how the little bare root roses just take off (zone 9) and bloom their hearts out. (Posted on 3/14/2018)
Quite a darlingReview by "Mo"
I am truly hoping my 'Teasing Georgia' decides to grow to the upward range of her height spec. as I want her to be a glorious display at one of the columns of my front porch. That spot does get a bit of shade too, and it will be quite a darling there. Alas, all my roses are just completing their first summer, and I still consider them baby roses right now. BUT she has given a few lovely flowers, and has stayed healthy throughout our Alabama summer. I think I will see what this sweet darling can really do next season. Thank you, as always, Heirloom Roses. (Posted on 9/28/2017)
A beautiful roseReview by Mesmereyes
I have had this rose for 3 years. The first thing I want to mention is that the first photo shown of this rose above looks peachy on my monitor. This rose is truly yellow on my Teasing Georgia. It is a large rose and will easily reach 9 feet, even though it is only a few years old. It is very black spot resistant in my Arkansas yard (we are zone 7 but Ozark region so our weather is usually gentler than most of AR). It smells lovely and is a consistent bloomer. I enjoy this rose and it is one of my favorite David Austin roses (I have 10 or so). (Posted on 7/8/2017)
beautiful flower and colorReview by Susan
I love the color and shape of this rose. I have had it only three weeks and it is blooming and growing well. The smell is not as fragrant as I expected but maybe that will change as the plant gets bigger. (Posted on 7/4/2017)
First Rose AttemptReview by Shadi
This is the firs and only rose I've attempted to grow thus far, and I must say it is pretty hardy. I live in the Northern Pacific, so the first year with it was a little rough with black spots even after trying to spray and prune the affected areas, but the blooms and leaves still came through fairly well. There were still several blooms despite the spots and it being the first year. I was really surprised. I also have them in a big container and made the mistake of cutting it back too far at the end of the season because of the spots. They still have come back super strong this season! I'm just about to get new blooms again and it is only March. The leaves are looking much healthier after using a bit of fish emulsion and giving them a bigger pot. Great first rose. I'm so happy I chose this one. They also smell lovely, especially in the summer sun. (Posted on 4/1/2017)
My Favorite!Review by Annie
This has become my favorite rose. I love the color, the double fullness and shape, and the fragrance.

I live in Central Texas and was not sure it would grow here, but it is doing well and so beautiful!!! (Posted on 3/2/2017)
Beautiful english rose with a soft fragranceReview by HLynn
I can't believe how quick this plant grew! I received the one gallon pot with a few small leaves and within a month it blossomed into a nice young plant that produced 12 buds/blooms already. (Pictures are included in the web administrator allows all of them.) This plant was my first (of now four) Heirloom roses, and at a time when I was fighting blackspot nearly every day with my home improvement store roses, my Heirloom roses were not affected.

Healthy RoseReview by Danny
This is an early review. I planted Teasing Georgia two week ago. It is healthy and doing well. I was surprised at how great the rose was when received. I will provide updates as the rose grows. (Posted on 6/6/2014)
WOWReview by T.L.
I live in coastal Mississippi, within 12 blocks of the Gulf of Mexico - hot and humid and very few freezing nights. I grew Georgia in a pot for 2 years while I house hunted. It was a little scrawny disappointment. Then I put it in the ground near my porch in a place appropriate to its perceived size. After a year and a half in the ground, it now has 8 to 10 foot canes that grab everyone who passes and spends 9 to 10 months of the year covered in blooms. It is now a week before Christmas, and it still has a few blooms. In our climate black spot runs rampant. I do NOT spray and have had a few roses die from infection, but Georgia had almost none. In this climate a great rose, but give it LOTS of space. (Posted on 12/18/2013)
What a great rose!Review by Becky
I purchased this rose from you several years ago. I live in North Dakota, zone 3/4. I do not cover my roses. They only have a woodchip mulch. Teasing Georgia is exposed to -20°F and whipping, blistering winds without snow cover. It is in the worst spot in my yard. This Rose Winter kills to the ground every year. It returns to 5 feet in full splendor, bigger and better every single year! The blossoms are huge and voluptuous. It ranges in color from pale yellow in Spring to pale apricot in Fall. It puts out huge clusters of gorgeous roses. It's unforgettable! It has a great fragrance too! (Posted on 6/1/2013)
