The roses on this hybrid tea have lasted over six weeks now and they are just now starting to brown a bit on the margins of the petals. I am thrilled with this, and it is such a surprise after the two or three day roses of summer and early fall. Late fall is supposed to be the best time of year for roses in the low desert, and I'm finding this to be true. This rose in this photo bloomed five days ago, and is still perfect. Intrepid means fearless, courageous and bold, and I think this hybrid lives up to its name.
Since this rose has done so well, I've looked for more bushes and no nursery has them. I checked back with the nursery where I bought this bush and they said it came in a mixed shipment purchased for a special sale, so this rose could not be ordered. It will be a matter of chance for me to find another. None of the other nurseries I visited have ever heard of it, and there is very little information on the web. The tag was generic and listed only the name.
