This floribunda blooms for months, each flower unique!

Talk about fiery color! 'Charisma' is absolutely stunning, with blooms that look like flames on a neat, very long-blooming shrub. This floribunda is an exceptional variety, offering summer-long color for the garden and all the fascinating blooms you can cut for the vase!

Arising from modest yellow buds, these 2-inch blooms just overwhelm with layers of nested petals, each a glowing gold at the base, shading to apricot, orange, and red toward the tips. The center is a frilly yellow, sometimes hidden by the masses of petals on all sides. Like all floribundas, 'Charisma' sets its blooms in large clusters, so when you cut a spray for the vase, you get mature blooms, newly-opened specimens, and even a bud or two. You'll love watching the color changes on this spectacular cultivar!

'Charisma' reaches 4 feet tall and wide, with good foliage cover and an upright habit. If you want to plant several side by side (what an effect!), space them about 3 feet apart for dense coverage. Super for the shrub or perennial border as well as the rose garden, 'Charisma' is even compact enough for containers or small-space accents.

A good companion to strongly-scented roses, 'Charisma' accentuates rich golden hues and is at its fiery best when set against clean whites.

Plant in full sun and any well-drained soil. 'Charisma' is quite hardy, but appreciates a winter mulch north of zone 7. Zones 5-9. Own root.

Only in there first year, but wow the color is what I had hoped. They do appear to be on fire! Can't wait to see future years and hoping they turn into showstoppers!
Like brushfire!

The little potted rose I planted last summer is now 3 feet tall (this early spring) and flowering in big clusters that look like fire. You can spot these a mile away and you're just drawn to them!
Fantastic color, covered with flowers all year, and very easy to grow

Great colors, stands out in yard. 8" plants grew to 3' tall and were constantly covered with flowers from early spring to first hard freeze. I would recommend this for ease of growing and bountiful beautiful flowers (colors are red to orange with some yellow hilights)...Fantastic grower even in red clay and our baking hot summers.
Still blooming!

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.

Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.

Container-Grown Rose Instructions
  • When your roses arrive, water them thoroughly.
  • Choose a well-drained location that recieves at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun each day. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball. Mix the native soil with compost or other organic material and add superphosphates.
  • Gently loosen the rootball, place it into the hole so that the bud union sits 1 to 2 inches below soil level, and fill the hole with the remaining soil.
  • Water thoroughly, then mulch heavily around the base for winter protection. Your roses will arrive lightly pruned, so it is not imperative that you do any additional pruning before winter.
