Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose
Rosa 'Georgia Peach™'

The Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose was discovered local gardener Beth Steele in McDonough, Georgia in 2010, and introduced by yours truly in 2012. Since we realeased it, it has demonstrated superior disease resistance that rivals even the Knock Out Rose. It is an exceptionally low-maintance shrub rose that produces an abundance of gorgeous, double, peachy-pink blossoms starting in mid-spring and repeating throughout the season. The blossoms have a light fruity fragrance and measure 3 to 4 inches across when fully open. They are excellent for cutting for use in fresh floral arrangements. 

The Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose has an upright rounded habit to about 3 to 4 feet in height with a 3 foot spread, making it an excellent selection for smaller garden spaces, or containers. Since we planted the first Georgia Peach™ in our gardens in 2011, we have yet to see any disease on the attractive bluish-green foliage. Insect resistance has been remarkable as well.

The Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose is exceptionally easy to grow in average, well-drained soils with medium moisture in full sun to part shade. Keep in mind that all roses require morning sun to dry the morning dew from their leaves, but will tolerate afternoon shade. Does not require pruning, however can benefit from it. To keep your Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose full and bushy from year to year prune the branches back to about 15-18 inches above the ground in late winter or early spring. After this hard pruning, you Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose will quickly flush out and start blooming with the arrival of warmer spring temperatures. Deadheading spent flowers through the season is not necessary, however will encourage new buds and flowers. The Georgia Peach™ Shrub Rose is a must have low-maintenance flowering beauty for every Georgia garden...and in gardens throughout USDA Zones 5a-9a  Find Your Zone >

A Great Rose!
This rose is exceptionally beautiful - lovely shape, lustrous green leaves, and it just blooms and blooms. I do deadhead. In a really rainy summer, we did spray it for black spot - but it wasn't totally necessary. The blooms are a lovely peachy-pink, and when the bush is covered, it's simply gorgeous. About as low maintenance as you can get, I highly recommend it. Give it space to breathe and maybe you won't have any blackspot. -------- WBG Reply: Hi Janet - Thanks so much for all the feedback on The Georgia Peach Rose. We have the original plant growing in our gardens and it's looking and performing as good in 2017 as it has from the beginning. We've yet to see any black spot on ours, but my guess is that it would be a temporary thing due to cloudy weather. In 2013 we had the rainiest summer on record in Georgia and the area it was in stayed saturated for a couple months. It wasn't looking good at all by fall. Had very few leaves and several main branches turned black. We pruned and transplanted it and by the next spring it flushed back out to it's normal size. Has been doing great ever since. A truly tough but beautiful rose! Let us know if there's ever anything else we can help you with. We're at your service! - Brent | Wilson Bros Gardens

Great Rose
I just love these roses! I bought two of them 4 years ago for a commemorative garden for my cousin. They arrived in a robust and healthy state. They flower from Early Spring to first frost. I live in Texas and the summer is really hot. These babies still put out blooms, despite the heat. They are now 4 ft tall and beautiful. One of my best purchases. I feed them once every two years, but they are well mulched. ---------- WBG RESPONSE: Hi Desiree - I couldn't agree with you more. I still have the original Georgia Peach Rose growing in my gardens. It's been there since it was discovered in 2010. I've transplanted it three times and it's still healthy as ever. It's May 15 and I just took some pictures of the blooms a few days ago. It's the second round of blooms so far this year. This is one tough but beautiful rose. Absolutely no disease and bugs don't seem to like it. Anyway, I could go on and on about the special attributes of this rose but will stop here. Thanks for your review and let us know if there's ever anything else we can help you with. Plant long and prosper!

Very nice
I bought this rose for a friend that had just lost her dog, named Georgia. She loved it! When she received it, it was full of buds and it started blooming within a few days. She said it was very healthy and a beautiful plant. Thank you, it made her day!

Extremely happy
Planted my Georgia Peach Rose last fall. With the extra cold tough winter, I was afraid if it would survive. It has leafed out beautifully and already has buds on it! I'm extremely happy with it.
