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.

#1 My Leonard da Vinci rose bush at the back of our property really makes a statement!

#2 Spray of blooms – Leonardo di Vinci

#3 First Kiss rose bush

  • 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.

    Thank you
