Fruity fragrance complements these blooms, which begin apricot and mellow to orange.

Plant Patent: #9,161. Cultivar name: 'Harwelcome' (Syn. Fellowship)

Radiant and carefree, these apricot-to-orange blooms arise in big clusters in early summer, filling the garden or home with zingy color in some of Nature's warmest tones! Boasting a delectable fruity scent, they are profusely borne and quite long-lasting. You'll love this adaptable floribunda for its exquisite flower form, great fragrance, and resistance to black spot!

Measuring 3 inches across, the blooms open a pale apricot, then blush to orange. A fully-blooming shrub sports every shade from pale peach to burnt orange -- a fabulous sight for summer!

This vigorous plant reaches 4 to 5 feet tall and 5 to 6 feet wide, with a dense, rounded shape. The foliage is olive-green and SO lush, unmarked by the black spot that destroys so many otherwise beautiful rose bushes. 'Livin Easy' is also quite adaptable to a variety of growing conditions, offering low-maintenance beauty you will really appreciate when the garden chores begin to pile up!

Bred by the renowned British firm of Harkness (and also known as 'Fellowship'), Livin Easy™ is the result of a cross between 'Southhampton' and 'Remember Me.' It won AARS honors in 1996, and continues to be one of the most stunning, long-blooming, colorful floribundas available today. Zones 5-9. Own root.

World's Finest Roses

California provides one of the finest rose-growing environments in the world. All of our roses are grown in soil that is tested and analyzed to ensure they are grown with the exact level of essential nutrients needed. The proper amounts of fertilizer, water, and nutrients are then added to the roses during their active growth cycle by our experienced rose growers.

Each rose is hand selected and prepared by seasoned professional rose growers. Our experienced growers are continually evaluating and testing the roses in the fields to ensure maximum rose health.

All of this tender loving care under the generous California sun results in a young but vigorously growing rose plant with a root system that is ready for fast blooming in your rose garden.

Exclusive and Superior Rose Breeding Process

Jackson and Perkins exclusive rose varieties have been bred to exhibit the most preferred rose characteristics for rose gardeners. It takes many years to develop a single rose variety, and our rose breeders have painstakingly evaluated, tested, and grown superior new genetic features into these new rose varieties for introduction.

The healthy rose plant canes are now hand groomed for the customers' garden presentation. The roses are then harvested at the perfect time in preparation for shipping and customer planting. All of these steps, from rose research, planting, budding, growing, harvesting and storing, are essential to ensure you receive a healthy, vigorous Jackson & Perkins rose plant, the WORLD’S FINEST ROSE.

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.
