It's appropriate that our new Floribunda Rose Julia Child™ has buttery bold blooms and a licorice-clove fragrance its namesake would have loved in the kitchen. This 2006 All-America Rose Selections winner produces very full blooms through the better part of five months, which makes it a compelling possibility for containers in warmer climates. Own-root. 'Wekvossutono'. PP 18,473
The world of Roses has been changing, and there are colors, perfumes, forms, and habits for every garden situation. Dedicated Rose breeders have continued the mysterious process and long-term commitment it takes to combine the best attributes of different varieties into new forms that simply did not exist 25 years ago. The basic needs of Roses, however, have not changed. Give them six hours or more of direct sun per day and fertile, reasonably moist soil.
Tip: We use Organic Gem® as a foliar feed on Rose bushes in our trial garden and find plants are healthier and perform better throughout the season.
