Belinda’s Dream, a shrub rose, was introduced in 1992. It is a cross between Tiffany and Jersey Beauty. In Texas, heavy bloomers such as Belinda’s dream are always going to have a more difficult time in the hot summer months. It is simply gorgeous in the cooler months.
Introduced in 1992, this gorgeous shrub rose was developed by Dr. Robert Basye, a mathematics professor at Texas A&M University and named after the daughter of one of his friends. Belinda’s Dream is disease tolerant and can be used as a hedge rose. It is disease and soil tolerant. It was the first rose to be designated Earth-Kind® by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. The large, very double pink blossoms come in large clusters from spring until frost. Bred in Texas to withstand hot temperatures, it does well in temperate climates as well. It may have some blackspot in cool, damp weather, but its vigor and blooming will not be affected by the disease. Light pruning improves appearance and blooming frequency.
