rose [Camelot]


Rosa Camelot = 'Tan05372' (also known as 'Camelot Rose') is a striking and elegant flowering plant featuring lush, green foliage. Its leaves are glossy and provide a wonderful contrast to the blooms. The flowers are the main attraction of this rose variety, showcasing a classic, cupped shape with delicate, velvety petals. Typically, the roses exhibit a captivating blend of colors, often presenting hues of pink, peach, or cream with subtle undertones and varying shades that may deepen toward the center. Each rosebud opens to reveal a full, rounded bloom with a multitude of layered petals that may sometimes exhibit a slight ruffling at their edges. The Camelot Rose is well-known for its enchantment as a cut flower due to the vividness of its colors and its alluring, mild to strong fragrance that carries notes of a classic rose scent with possibly fruity or spicy undertones. The flowers are typically borne in clusters, which adds to the visual impact of the plant when it is in full bloom. The Camelot Rose is a repeat bloomer, meaning it has the ability to produce several flushes of flowers through the growing season, often from late spring until the first frosts of fall. This adds to the plant's appeal for continuous color in a garden. The overall presentation of the Camelot Rose with its charming blooms and robust foliage makes it a distinguished choice for ornamental gardens and landscape designs, where it provides aesthetic value and a sense of romance and beauty.

  • water dropWater

    For the Camelot Rose, it’s important to maintain consistent moisture, so the plant should be watered deeply once a week, providing about 1-2 gallons of water per session. During extremely hot or dry weather, you may need to water twice a week. Always check the soil before watering; it should be moist but not waterlogged. Avoid overhead watering to prevent leaf diseases and instead direct the water to the base of the plant. In winter or rainy periods, reduce watering frequency to prevent root rot.

  • sunLight

    Camelot Roses thrive in full sun, requiring at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and blooming. The best spot for planting them is an area that gets unfiltered morning sunlight and some afternoon shade in extremely hot climates. Avoid locations where buildings, trees, or shrubs block the sunlight for a significant part of the day.

  • thermometerTemperature

    The Camelot Rose prospers in a temperature range where the nighttime lows don't fall below 20 degrees Fahrenheit and the daytime highs usually remain below 90 degrees Fahrenheit. They can survive short periods of colder weather down to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit, but prolonged exposure to extreme cold can damage the plant. The ideal temperature range for growing healthy Roses is roughly between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the day.

  • scissorsPruning

    Camelot Roses should be pruned to maintain their shape and encourage vigorous growth. Prune in late winter or early spring, removing any dead, diseased, or damaged wood as well as any thin, weak canes. Also, cut back about one-third of the previous year's growth to promote fresh blooms. The best time to prune is after the last frost but before the new growth starts in earnest.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Rosa Camelot, commonly known as Camelot Rose, begins its life cycle as a dormant bare root plant or a young potted specimen. The plant then enters a vegetative growth phase, where it develops a strong root system, healthy leaves, and sturdy stems. Following vegetative growth, the Camelot Rose enters the flowering stage, producing buds that bloom into its characteristic large, pink flowers in late spring to early summer. After pollination, if applicable, these roses will set hips (seed pods), which mature by late summer and can be used for propagation. The Camelot Rose will continue to grow and may repeat bloom through the summer and into fall in ideal conditions. As temperatures cool and day length shortens, the plant will begin to enter dormancy, shedding leaves and conserving energy for the next growing season.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The Rosa Camelot, commonly known as 'Tan05372' (PBR) (ClF), is typically propagated through cuttings. This involves taking a piece of the rose's stem during the cooler parts of the year, ideally in late fall or early winter. The cutting, which should be about 6 to 8 inches long (15 to 20 cm), is taken from a healthy, disease-free plant. It is then trimmed just below a leaf node, and the lower leaves are removed to expose the nodes where roots will develop. The cut end is often dipped in rooting hormone to encourage root growth and then placed in a moist soil mix. The cutting should be kept in indirect light and at a stable temperature until new growth indicates that roots have developed, a process that can take several weeks to a few months depending on the conditions.
