In the floriculture world, common knowledge dictates that in order to grow big headed roses with longer stems you must do it in high altitude areas. This is in part quite true and has been proven to be so over the years. But theres a new trend being championed by Rose Breeders, Nirp International that might just change the 'rule book'. Their newly introduced Jambo Line range.
Under the Jambo Line series, Nirp currently has two rose varieties, "Unbealivable and Beautiful Day". These roses have been specially bred for both low and high altitude growers. Even in low altitude, a grower will still get big headsizes, long stems and good production.
Beautiful Day is radiant rose with pink/white bi-color. She grows a large bud of upto 7.4mm and has an average prodution of 130 in East Africa. Average stemlenght for Beautiful Day is 60-8-cm.
Unbelievable grows a large head with a good shape even at low altitude.
