The Best of Series | Floribunda Roses

 

Floribunda roses are a widely popular, hardy and free flowering variety of rose that can be grown and enjoyed by new and seasoned gardeners alike. The term floribunda denotes that these varieties tend to produce masses of stunning flowers in large clusters unlike hybrid tea roses which produce a single large flower on each stem. Floribunda roses are also very robust and disease resistant which makes them an ideal choice for mixed borders or container growth.
