The Adelaide Hoodless Rose is an ever blooming hardy Floribunda rose. The brightly colored semi double blooms have pretty yellow stamens. The color is deep pink to reddish.
The 2 1/2" flowers come in clusters that are produced freely all season.
Not only is this beauty hardy, but the Adelaide Hoodless rose is disease resistant as well.
It is not fussy about ph or soil type, making it an easy to grow rose, that is pretty carefree.

These pictures are from the bush I planted last year. The bush didn't do much last year, but it seems to be wanting to go this season! The clusters of flowers are actually bigger than the bush itself!
I've heard of gardeners who have a mature bush of Adelaide Hoodless, and get well over 100 blooms on the plant at a time. (I can't wait!)
The pretty pink blooms on this hardy ever blooming hardy Floribunda remind me of the climbing blaze rose.
It has produced lots of rose blooms in arching clusters. I stuck the trellis behind it to keep it off the ground. I've deadheaded it as the blooms fade, and it is eager to send out new shoots.
Adelaide Hoodless rose is one of the Parkland series roses. They are very hardy roses. It is quite popular in Canada where it was introduced.
It is an own root rose, so even if it had a hard winter and died back to the ground, the roots are still there to send up new canes. (I love those own root roses!)
Although it is disease resistant, it is said to be black spot susceptible. (I haven't had any yet this season on it)
It begins blooming in June and continues until frost, when it produces rose hips. (perfect for making Rose hip tea!) Here's the recipe!
