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.
This clustered-flowered rose blooms from Summer through Fall, on smooth, almost thorn-less canes. It is fairly disease-resistant, but could be prone to mildew.
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.,
