Francis Meilland

Type: Hybrid Tea

This award-winning rose is known for being extremely disease resistant for its type. Named after a remarkable rose breeder, this rose has large, high-centered blooms of soft, shell pink that give off an old rose fragrance. The buds are substantially conical-shaped. The very large, full blooms have 37 petals and are 5” in diameter on average. This repeating blooming rose is perfectly framed against its glossy, dark green foliage. Flowers also drop off cleanly, making it great as a cut rose. They grow to be 2.5’ to 4’ tall and 2’ wide.

So far so good. A very nice rose.Review by PAKen
Originally I was in zone 5 but with climate change we are probable closer to 6b. I've planted 6 new roses this year (all from Heirloom) but this one has excited my expectations. All of my new roses have done well but Francis is almost in stature equal to my 2 and 3 year old roses. Very pleased. (Posted on 8/8/2018)
Beautiful rose with an old fashioned smellReview by Mary
Virginia is a tough place to grow roses. The beetles eat them while still buds and spraying doesn't matter. I have four bushes. This rose seems to be immune. The flowers are lovely on long steams. And the smell is wonderful. It is the perfect Rose bush. (Posted on 7/20/2017)
Stunning Review by Shay
This rose is one of my favorites! I have two plants and they develop huge, beautiful blooms. Cream and pink towards the center, and the fragrance is carried by the summer breeze so well I can smell them in my dining room. (Posted on 4/11/2017)
Love this rose!Review by Nicole
I have my Francis Meilland in a pot and it immediately grew thick healthy canes with the most beautiful soft pink/peach large roses with a fragrance to match. I'm thinking about getting another. (Posted on 11/18/2016)
