The Playboy rose is one of the most outstanding, showy, disease resistant roses of the Floribunda roses. The color will draw visitors to it like a magnet.
The color reminds me of an exotic sunrise. Bright orange, with scarlet shading, and a bright yellow eye. This is a red-blend rose like no other.
This is one of the showiest roses you can plant in your garden!

This is a very floriferous Floribunda rose that is an outstanding rose. It is very disease resistant. It loves the sun, but actually has larger blooms in cooler weather.
The beautiful blooms appear in large sprays above very glossy, dark green foliage.
The medium size clusters of large flowers grow on strong, straight stems, great for cutting. The flowers emit a sweet apple fragrance.
These rose plants can grow 4-5 tall. Hard pruning of this rose encourages bigger sprays of flowers.
It performs consistently in all climates. This one is a real show-stopper in the garden!
As most Floribunda Roses they bloom continually in clusters of flowers. More than one bloom in each truss is open at any given time. It has the advantage of producing clusters of flowers on one stem, making it easy to pick a bouquet.
This rose makes a very pretty bouquet for the vase. Mix in some ferns, and baby's breath, and you have a dazzling bouquet.
