Floribundas Part 7 by Charlotte Hundley, ARS Master Rosarian
My final recommendations for Tending My Garden readers are Leonardo da Vinci, a relatively new rose (introduced in 1994) with an old world feel. And thelovely First Kiss.
I have shown you a dozen of my favorite Floribundas, but there are many more to choose from. I hope you will try several in your perennial beds and let me know how you like them. Just leave a comment for me at the end of this post.
You’ll find Floribundas easy to care for and unrivaled in their ability to provide massive and long lasting colorful garden displays.

I used to have First Kiss rose bushes and my husband killed them with round up. Where can i purchase them? Can’ t find anywhere. They were my favorite.
Give Jackson and Perkins a call Vicki. I think they have First Kiss.
I have also been looking for this rose for a couple years. Anyone willing to share a cutting?
