You'll get plenty of blooms from this velvety apricot/blend Floribunda rose. The lovely flowers are high-centered,or cupped shaped and are great when used in floral arrangements. When cut at an early age, the flowers open slowly, extending the vase life. A bouquet of these velvety, fragrant blooms will brighten any room.

The full-petaled, large flowers can become crowded in warmer climates. The flowering is so intense in the clusters, that dis-budding some of the blooms might be necessary.

It prefers warmer climates, and usually performs better when planted in warmer zones.

This is a Floribunda rose that has been, and still is a very popular rose, ever since it was introduced over 30 years ago.,
