Floribunda Rose, Honey Bouquet Rose

General Description

Perfect pale apricot yellow, fully double roses adorn the honey sweet fragrant rose, Honey Bouquet. The large flowers are borne on shrubby, well-branched plants with glossy, deep green foliage. Flowers come all season long and the shrubs grow vigorously.

This hardy rose 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 fully double (~35 to 40 petals) flowers are pale yellow and have a sweet, honeyed 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. In fact, there are many common pests and diseases that can harm them. Fortunately, new cultivars are bred to be disease resistant. This selection is tolerant of rust and powdery mildew but susceptible to blackspot.

Floribunda roses are a landscape must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and hedges. Especially pretty, diseases resistant floriferous cultivars like this one.
