The Cinco de Mayo rose are very unique colored Floribunda roses that produce clusters of festive colors!
The color is a nice blend of red, orange, smoke, and magenta combined to produce an unknown color that can't be categorized! It is a double flowered rose that sports a center of yellow with yellow stamens.
The flowers are produced in very large clusters throughout the season on 10-15" stems.
As the flowers are spent on the Cinco de Mayo rose, new ones are always opening.

The Cinco de Mayo rose is a standout in the garden. Garden visitors are drawn to the unusual color and beautiful flowering habit!
Gardeners (and even garden catalogs) disagree on the color of this rose. It's THAT unusual! Is it magenta? Russet? Well...its hard to describe actually! But everyone who sees these lovely Floribunda roses agrees that it has an unusual beauty like no other.
I must admit, when I first say this rose offered in the catalogs, I wasn't to impressed; until I saw it growing in a garden...I had to get one... I'm so glad I did! It is simply beautiful, and seems to be always blooming with those unique colored blooms!
