Precious Dream, bred by Ralph Moore, California, 2002.

Precious DreamFrom the Sequoia Nursery catalog for 2002: This new very double 2-1/2" rose is a delightful soft pink flower of old fashioned form. Bushy, rounded plant (2-3 feet) with mid-green, semi- glossy foliage. 3 inch blooms on a 2.5 foot tall shrub. This rose is one of the new Hybrid Bracteatas resulting from decades of work with the species, R. bracteata.

This is a breakthrough in R. bracteata breeding that Ralph Moore has been working towards for many years. 'Precious Dream' is a Floribunda type plant of about 2.5 feet tall, with blooms produced singly and in small clusters. It has a pleasant fruity scent as well. The bloom form of this rose is a perfect arrangement of swirled petals that open flat in a very attractive manner.

'Precious Dream' is available from The Uncommon Rose.
