Moondance Floribunda Rose
Its upright and well-branched habit is extremely vigorous, remarkably trouble free, and mildew resistant.
You'll want to fill every available sunny spot with its warm color and sweet, raspberry scent
This gorgeous floribunda is as ethereal and lovely as its name suggests, offering large trusses of creamy white flowers that create a striking contrast against the very glossy, dark green foliage. Its upright and well-branched habit is extremely vigorous, remarkably trouble free, and mildew resistant. You'll fall in love with this award-winning rose and be tempted to fill every available sunny spot with its warm color and sweet, subtle, raspberry fragrance.
'Moondance' is a tall plant, reaching a height of 5 feet, with 14- to 18-inch stems--perfect for filling those indoor arrangements. Its pointed and oval-shaped buds unfurl into high-centered flowers, which open flat 3 ? to 4 inches in diameter, each with about 25 petals. It blooms even more vigorously and offers more fragrance than its famous parent, 'Iceberg'. Its densely petaled blooms illuminate the garden, coming in flushes throughout the season. It's no wonder it was named our Floribunda of the Year® in 2007!
You should remove spent blooms to encourage reblooming and give it a spring pruning that removes old canes and dead wood. Cut back any canes that cross. It's recommended that you cut back the remaining canes by about one third or a little more in colder areas.

What to ExpectContainer 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.
