Mauve or mauve blend Floribunda.

(PPAF) Milk chocolate and lavender? You have to see it to believe it! It’s hard to imagine a milky chocolate-colored bud maturing to a solid soft lavender blossom. The transition is so unusual and actually quite beautiful. The chocolate is creamy, like latte, but the latte goes ‘loco’ and finishes fully lavender. The blooms have impeccable show form and are long-lasting on the plant and in the vase. Rounded, bushy plants are chock full of deep green leaves that stay clean and healthy. Beyond its novelty, this is a great plant! Flower Size: 3-1/2 to 4-1/2″. Fragrance: Mild. Hybridizer: Bedard, 2012.

Milky chocolate suffusing to unusual lavender. Mild fragrance. 30 to 35 petals. Average diameter 4.5″. Medium-large, full (26-40 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters, classic hybrid tea, high-centered bloom form. Prolific, blooms in flushes throughout the season. Long, pointed buds.

Deep pink Hybrid Tea.

A brilliant deep, clear pink – so bright you’d think it would glow in the dark. As a garden subject it has no peer because it’s constantly in bloom all season long. In fact, few bother to disbud it because it would limit bloom production. The large foliage is polished deep green and goes right up to the neck of the bloom. Under ordinary circumstances it’s one of the cleanest, hardiest, brightest pinks around. Cursed with a myriad of tiny, sharp thorns, which is undoubtedly its only means of protecting its super fragrant blooms. Flower Size: 5-7″. Fragrance: Strong. Hybridizer: McGredy, 1973.

Rose-pink. Flowers shocking pink. Strong fragrance. 32 to 40 petals. Average diameter 5″. Large, full (26-40 petals), borne mostly solitary, exhibition, high-centered bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.

Shockwave

Medium yellow Floribunda.


There’s no rose that’s any yellower and no foliage that’s any greener. The combo makes your eyes blink & your head spin in disbelief. Better yet, the flowers hold on to their searing yellow tones to the very end, dropping away from the well-behaved plant just in time to welcome the next round of bloom. Tidy enough to tuck into a landscape, lend an accent to a container or top a rose tree. Loads of bright, super-glossy apple green leaves mirror the blazing blossoms.

Scentimental

Red blend Floribunda.

You might think stripes are a new-fangled thing. But it is the old rose heritage that brings the genetic stripping to this spicy scented new-comer. Each petal is as unique as a snowflake–some more burgundy-splashed-white, some creamed-swirled-red-all on the same vigorous plant. The old-fashioned form & fragrance may remind you of its stingy blooming ancestors. Yet the nearly continuous number of blossoms lets you know there’s modern kinfolk in there, too. Distinctive clean quilted foliage.

Red blend, stripes. Flowers striped burgandy and white, or cream, or red, opening quickly. Strong, damask, rose, spice fragrance. 25 to 36 petals. Average diameter 4.75″. Large, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season. Pointed buds.

Medium, compact, rounded. Large, semi-glossy, medium green, wavy or ruffled foliage.
