The Light My Fire rose undoubtedly got it's name from the bright orange/red colored blooms that make you think of the color of a hot flame.
These beautiful Floribunda roses are a standout in the garden, providing you with wave after wave of bright red and rich orange colored blooms. This unique color is rather rare in the rose family.
The double bloom form flowers on the 'Light My Fire' rose open to roses that are around 4" across. The pretty blooms have ruffled petals and are cupped. They appear on the bush in large clusters, allowing you to make one snip and be rewarded with a whole bouquet for the vase.
Once cut, the flowers are long lasting in the vase. Unfortunately, they do not offer much in the fragrance department, but are lovely in the vase just the same.
