Floribunda - Smoky lavender & rusty red-orange blend

 

2009 AARS winner.  This seedling of Julia Child puts a whole new spin on ‘flower power’.  The clusters of blooms never stop poppin’ open on this powerfully flowerful Floribunda.  Mysteriously colored & deliriously novel…it’s an indescribable blending of smoked lavender & rusty red-orange.  Yet it’s perfectly blendable with any color in the garden, whether it’s atop a rose tree, planted in mass or nestled amongst your favorite perennials.  The super-clean glossy-green foliage mirrors the flowers, adding even more pizazz to this bushy rounded flower factory.
