The Eutin Rose produces cluster flowered Floribunda roses in enormous sprays. The beautiful blooms are carmine red colored double bloom form roses.
The blooms themselves are small and only lightly fragrant, but the large spray of them are simply breath-taking. A single flower is nothing impressive, but the huge cluster of up to 50 blooms, creates an effect you simply can't forget!

One of the earliest Floribundas, this rose has been popular since it's introduction in 1940. Why? Because of it's eagerness to produce large clusters of blooms with very little care. Many neglected plants still survive (and bloom) in old gardens. Some of these plants are more than 30 years old!
This rose is a survivor that continues to perform wherever it is planted by producing lots of blooms, with very little maintenance.
The little rose flowers open from small buds that become globular flowers. When fully open they show their stamens. The flower petals are a bit lighter color on the backs, with occasional white stripes.
A spray makes a beautiful bouquet that lasts well in the vase.
The dark, glossy, healthy foliage makes the rosebush disease resistant.
The growth on this rose is vigorous, with a bush usually growing around 4-5' tall and wide, but in warmer climates, bushes can get larger.
Pruning keeps the foliage thicker, and the bush more shapely.
The repeat bloom is quite good on this rose.
It is a good performer in all climates and circumstances, even being shade tolerant when need be. It has been known to survive in some of the toughest conditions.
In Texas you might know this rose as 'Rustlers Skyrocket'.
Some southerners might also call it 'Hoosier Glory'.
These roses are also good used for Potpourri, where the fragrance becomes more intense once dried.
The Eutin rose makes an ideal hedge, and is an excellent rose for bedding. If nothing else, plant one in your cutting garden, for some very impressive bouquets!
