The Kimberlina rose bears sweet pink, elegant looking blooms that are a soft, light pink color with a rose pink reverse. The pointed, ovoid buds begin a darker pink color. They appear in clusters, and become romantic pink blooms. The opened flowers on the Kimberlina rose reveal a tuft of golden stamens.
The beautiful blooms cover the bush in flushes throughout the season.
The double bloom form flowers look like small sized Hybrid Teas.
This is a vigorous growing Floribunda rose that will grow up to 4' in both height and width.
It was bred by Dr. Keith W. Zary in 1999 and introduced by Jackson & Perkins in 2009, and was a former 'Floribunda of the Year' winner.

This rose 'Kimberlina' is a vigorous, upright growing rose bush that has many uses in the garden. You can plant it in the garden bed where it will mix well with other perennials (especially silver or yellow colored ones) or plant it in the rose garden, use it in a border, as a hedge, or you can even grow it in a large container. Be sure to cut some of the sweet scented flowers from it for the vase.
The pretty pink blooms stand out nicely against the dark green, glossy foliage.
It is best to keep the flowers deadheaded to encourage re-bloom.
