ROSA 'Harwelcome'(LIVIN' EASY™) PP9161
Floribunda Rose, Livin' Easy™ Rose
Large fully double roses in shades of orange, pink and yellow are the highlight of the floribunda rose, Livin’ Easy™. Hybridized by J. L. Harkness and introduced in 1992 by Weeks Roses, this heavy bloomer also boasts glossy green foliage that’s blackspot resistant.
Livin’ Easy™ is a woody deciduous shrub with stems lined with sharp woody thorns. It has a bushy habit, compound leaves that are dark to medium green and is everblooming. Its large clusters of fully double (25 to 30 petals) flowers are blended shades of warm rose pink, orange and yellow and have a slight sweet, fruity fragrance. With good care, shrubs produce large, abundant clusters all season long.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. Fortunately, newer cultivars like this one are bred to be disease resistant.
Floribunda roses are a landscape must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and hedges.
