Treasure Trail™

Introduced in 2009 by Paul Barden

I am an unabashed fan of Paul Barden's reblooming modern mosses. Having grown Treasure Trail for a year, I find it to be one of the most unique roses in our collection of 1500+ varieties, and one that I, well, treasure. Paul has classed Treasure Trail as a pink blend. This is a rose with extremely variable, complex, color. The overall impression often is of a peachy glow, fading to warm pink with reddish tints. The outer petals tend to be a warm pink and the inner petals peach-orange, often with reds blended in. It blooms virtually continuously, and prolifically, without needing to be deadheaded. I am taken by the slight uncurling of the petal edges combined with the button eye. The effect is crisp, and, for me, recalls chrysanthemums. The foliage is dark green and glossy. The generous mossing is very heavily scented of Lemon/Balsam. Some Blackspot protection may be needed though we haven't seen this. Mildew is not a problem. Paul has it listed for Zone 6, but he thinks, with protection, it can be grown in colder climates. Its short, compact, rounded shape, continuously covered with bloom, and requiring little deadheading or pruning, is perfect for a container, and, perhaps, a conversation piece as well.
