The Caribbean Breeze rose has soft colored, tropical looking blooms with wavy petals that weave around each other.
The color is a creamy orange/pink with a bit of a deep yellow center that seems to glow!
You'll enjoy clusters of these Floribunda rose blooms all season. And yes, they make nice cut flowers for the vase.
Even the name hints at it being tropical looking 'like a sunset in the tropics'.

The Caribbean Breeze rose is compact, and low growing. At maturity it will only be around 3' tall.
It is a great rose for a low border, hedge, or the front of the rose garden. My thought would be to plant it around a statue, bird bath or other garden ornament for a stunning display. The amazing blooms sitting on top of the glossy, dark green foliage are a standout wherever you plant them!
They also do well when planted in containers. (containers will require winter protection).
And don't forget the cutting garden, because these roses just beg you to snip off a cluster of blooms!
They produce blooms in flushes throughout the growing season.
