Description

'Falling in Love' is a cultivar shrub in the Rosaceae (rose) family.  Hybridized from Moostone x Marilyn Monroe by Tom Carruth in 2006, it was introduced by Weeks Roses in 2007.  

A fragrant, classical hybrid tea rose with high centered, continuous, double, spiraled blooms that appear as pointed, ovoid, creamy buds that open to show their pink interior with creamy reverse sides.  It blooms in flushes throughout the season, deadheading will encourage additional blooms.

It has a mild to strong, fruity fragrance.  

Pruning to remove old canes and dead branches and to shape should be accomplished in the late fall and early spring.

It can grow larger in locations that experience cooler conditions.
