The Rainbow Sorbet rose is a very unique rosebush with two-toned flowers. These Floribunda roses produce lovely red and yellow combination blooms.
They are quite stunning on the plant, and will draw you to them in the garden. This glorious bi-color Floribunda rose starts blooming early, and repeats well all season.
The colors of the flowers range from yellow, through orange and red, in an ever changing magical (rainbow)effect.
The petals have darker red on the tips, and soften to white, then yellow in the very center, showing yellow stamens.
The dark green glossy foliage is full
on the plant, and is dense all the way to the ground, so you don't need
to plant something in front of it.

The combination of the ever-changing flowers give this rose a uniqueness that's hard to find on other roses. It is such a pleasing combination, that you'll wonder if you should pick some for bouquets to bring in-side, or leave them on the bush to enjoy in the garden! But do pick some, they make stunning bouquets!
These pretty blooms seem to 'glow'. Rainbow Sorbet is great for accent planting, hedges, or general garden plants. You'll get a bonus of nice red hips in the Fall.
