Floribunda Roses, as the name suggests, produce abundant clusters of colorful flowers over a long season.

Most of these roses  range in height from 2-6 ft, depending on the variety.  As you can see from the pictures below, the rose type 'Floribunda' comes in lots of different colors and even bloom types. They are a most desirable, and worthy rose for your garden.

What are Floribunda Roses?
Most Floribunda  bloom in clusters, while some produce flowers one to a stem. They often have hybrid tea type flowers, or semi-double flowers that are cupped or flat.

Most bloom in sprays, all summer long. The Floribunda's are the most colorful of all rose types,making them great for adding lots of color!

Floribunda Roses, are a cross between a hybrid tea, and a Polyantha rose.

They are usually hardier, bushier, and more low growing than the Hybrid Teas. They are a beautiful landscape rose, that is best used for borders,hedges, or mass plantings.

The flowers can be single, semi-double, double, and some even VERY double!

Because they come in such a large variety of colors,  you're sure to find a few that are perfect for YOUR garden. Scroll down, to  view some of the many colors available.
