Pillow Fight Rose Bush
The white flowers of the Pillow Fight rose look as soft and fluffy as pillow down and waft a dreamy
through the air. This low growing Shrub rose produces these small but numerous blooms all summer.
This beautiful Shrub rose was hybridized by Carruth and introduced in the year 2000.
It is a seedling of Pink Pollyanna x Gourmet Popcorn which, not surprisingly, produces masses of brilliant white blooms which contrast strikingly with the shrub's dark, elegant foliage.
Like Gourmet Popcorn, Pillow Fight is everblooming. But the child surpasses the parent in every other respect. Pillow Fight is a larger shrub (though neither rose is large as Shrub roses go) featuring larger leaves and larger flowers which carry 25-30 petals each.
Going by petal count alone, I would have to classify the blooms as double (anything over 21 petals) but because of the pompon shape of the flowers, they look more like semi-double roses to my eye.
The blooms occur in clusters on the spreading shrub beginning in late spring and repeating so frequently that the plant seems never to be out of bloom. When the sun is upon them, they smell of rose petals drizzled with warm honey. Good enough to eat!
The glossy leaves clothing the 3-4 foot canes demonstrate moderate disease resistance in all climates but will be healthiest in dry locations.
Plant the dreamy Pillow Fight rose in full sun in USDA gardening zones 5-10.
