Loads of big beautiful blooms nearly cover this sultry rose and those lovely lavender old-fashioned flowers just seem to last and last!
Underneath all that beauteousness is a bushy rounded plant clothed with great rich green leaves. Go ahead …bury your face in those beautiful clusters and burst into song. It'll be love at first sight. Largest flower size in cool temps. 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.
