We continue our acquaintance with the best roses of the world assortment and today I invite you to the rose garden of my favorite Botanical garden (hereinafter — the Garden).
Virtually walking along the paths between the flower beds, we will see the best pink beauties of floribund.
Let me just remind you that the word floribunda means abundant flowering, that is, today we will see the diva floribunda (Cluster-flowered bush), which have not one flower, but more often — inflorescence-brush.
And let the floribund flowers are inferior to the flowers of tea-hybrid beauties in size and sophistication of the goblet shape, but there are many of them. Sometimes the flowering of these roses resembles ready-made bouquets on the Bush. In addition, roses floribunda still have a lot of advantages: long abundant flowering, a variety of colors; unpretentiousness, resistance to fungal diseases.
In describing the varieties can not do without the standard characteristics, but the” dry ” numbers I will try to compensate for the subjective perception of living beauty roses.
Well, are you ready to go with me to the rose garden? Then go ahead, to meet with the next divas of the pink Kingdom.
