Formerly only a florist rose, Red Intuition is now distributed as a garden rose. It is instantly recognizable due to its alluring red on red streaked petals. I obtained my first specimen when it was only available in the US from Wisconsin Roses as a maiden rose; meaning, you received it as a brand new graft on its dormant root stock, had to let the root stock leaf out and let the graft take hold as a new bud union, then cut the foliage and the main shank off just above the graft, and let the graft take over. When I first read what I would need to do, it seemed a little intimidating at first, but it turned out to be an easier process than I first thought. Best of all, it worked, and it gave me a sense of what growers do with the plants before we ever see them in the nurseries. (For a detailed explanation, visit Wisconsin Rose's website here: http://www.wiroses.com/maiden_...)
