Floribunda ROSES

Floribunda Roses bear large clusters of flowers, creating a massed colour effect – few plants can produce so much colour over such a long season. They generally have little scent, although more fragrant varieties are now appearing. Despite the original Floribunda Rose being the result of crossing a Hybrid Tea Rose with a Polyantha Rose, Floribundas are generally hardy, more robust and more disease resistant than Hybrid Teas and therefore easier to grow. Also, unlike Hybrid Teas, they are ideal for growing in large beds and mixed borders.
