Floribunda Roses

FLORIBUNDA ROSES: Rose-breeders seek to improve the roses they sell, and nurserymen soon began to cross the Polyanthas with the Hybrid Tea roses. Their later introductions became known as Floribunda roses, whose flower-clusters come in all the colours now obtainable and are similar in shape, and often in size, to the Hybrid Teas. Floribundas are very hardy and very popular, and came to dominate the gardens of the second half of the 20th century. They have been further developed to produce miniature, patio and ground-cover forms. Though not typical, ‘Singin’ in the Rain’, 1991 (shown) is an example of this very varied Group.
