Leslie writes; very fragrant, large flowers, very hardy

The backs of the petals are slightly paler in color, with more yellow in the center. The wavy petals are thick, and shield shaped, with little pointed tips.

The small pointed buds open in a pale shade of apricot, then blush to orange with age. A bush in full bloom appears to have different colored roses on it all times, as the flowers are in different stages of age.

The flowers open slightly cupped, eventually showing golden stamens, and acquiring crimson edges as they age.

Blooms appear in small clusters of 3-7, and are produced prolifically.

These easy care Floribunda roses are great for the beginning rose gardener, or for those who feel that growing roses is to much work.

  • They are very hardy
  •  Very disease resistant; especially to black spot and mildew
  • They are shade tolerant
  • They are quite fragrant
  • The color of the blooms is incredible

This is a vigorous growing rose that can grow to be 4-5' tall. It is rather dense, and rounded in shape. It is well armed with prickly thorns all down the stems.

These orange roses grow well in a wide variety of climates. It repeats quickly and well, producing sprays of blooms on rugged, highly disease resistant plants.

This is an especially good landscape rose that looks superb in massed plantings. (So for the full effect of this gleaming beauty, plant more than one!)

Livin Easy Floribunda rose

By; PD Laich in Pennsylvania

We love the orange/apricot color of our new Livin'Easy floribunda rose...and the fragrance is a light spice--so nice.

The flowers open quickly and last well when cut and enjoyed in a vase. This rose is an unusual color and a really nice addition--I suggest y'all give this one a try!
