It’s not surprising that Julia Child herself chose this buttery yellow floribunda rose to bear her name!
Not only is it a beautiful colour, it also gives off a licorice candy scent and that combined with the perfectly rounded habit, super glossy leaves and great disease resistance make it irresistible. This awesome AARS award winner is the perfect rememberance for such a lovely lady.
Floribundas are a relatively new group of roses. Introduced in 1930, the original floribundas were the result of crosses of large-flowered Hybrid Tea roses and an old-fashioned class of dwarf roses called Polyanthas. The result has been relatively compact bushes with superior hardiness and disease resistance that produce large clusters of somewhat smaller blooms.
Generally speaking, Floribunda roses are bushy shrubs that produce flower clusters of 3 to 15. They are everblooming and have the same wide colour range as do the Hybrid Teas. They are especially valuable for their ability to adapt to a wide range of temperature and soil conditions. Today they are still used in large bedding schemes in public parks and similar spaces.
Our assortment of Weeks roses come in a variety of sizes and have been specially selected for their cold weather tolerance and are imported directly from the Weeks Roses in California, U.S.A.- one of the largest commercial rose growers in the United States since 1938.
