History of the Black Baccara Rose:

Do you know that..

Rosa Black Baccara was first introduced in France in 2000 by Meilland International. It was hybridized by Jacques Mouchotte by crossing a Fuego Negro rose with a Célica rose.

The Black Baccara rose was later introduced to the United States in 2002 by Conard Pyle through Star Roses in Pennsylvania.

The color of the Black Baccara rose is not black, but rather a deep dark red.

This “hybrid tea” rose is usually cultivated for later use in arrangements (cut flower). Black Baccara does not have a very intense fragrance, however the beautiful red flowers of this variety are absolutely stunning in any arrangement.

Black Baccara Roses grow on bushes about 6 meters tall that tend to be very narrow and produce solitary flowers a little over 1.5 m tall. The flowers are full and typically contain up to 45 petals each. The leaves are medium-glossy dark green and have long stems.

Despite being bred for the flower trade, this variety of roses has what it takes to flourish in outdoor gardens. The velvety texture of the petals and their unique dark red color will make your garden a real success. The flowers last up to 2 weeks in a vase.

The black buds unfold, letting very dark roses bloom. Although they are considered black roses, consider the color more red/blackberry. The buds of Black Baccara roses, however, are so dark that they appear almost black, depending on the light.
