Cinco de Mayo™ Floribunda Rose



All-America Rose Selections Winner 2009

Enjoy a garden party with a fiesta flavor with Cinco de Mayo™ Floribunda Rose. Offering giant clusters of blooms in a variety of hues, the festive shrub provides an array of distinctive color in a single bouquet.

Each bloom is unique, varying in shade from orange to magenta and purple. The combination of bright flowers and glossy, green foliage growing up to 4 feet in height provides a cornucopia of color complemented by the blooms' sweet apple aroma.

The clusters of blooms just never stop on this powerfully flowerful floribunda. Mysteriously colored and deliriously novel, this rose is an indescribable combination of smoked lavender and rusty red-orange. Cinco de Mayo™ is compatible with any color in the garden, whether it's atop a rose standard, planted in mass or nestled amongst your favorite perennials. The super-clean, glossy green foliage mirrors the flowers, adding even more effect to this rounded bushy little celebration of color and relaxation.

An offspring of celebrated international award winner Julia Child, Cinco de Mayo™ flowers arise from slender, pointed buds to 3-inch blossoms on stems of 10 to 15 inches.

Ideal as a stunning display, Cinco de Mayo ™ is also a great option for a hedge and grows well in a large container. Like other floribundas, it thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Spring pruning is recommended to help facilitate reblooming and old and dead wood should be removed.

This is one of the most beautiful roses I've ever seen! Must have for any rose garden. Bought it as a bare root, and it took off immediately. Blooming after only about 6 weeks. Five stars all the way.

Very special

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is a beautiful rose. The color is a mix between red, brown, and orange. Just amazing. Just planted this barefoot in February, and now in late April I have my first blooms. The plant has deep green foliage and looks so healthy. Highly recommend

Bad in hot weather

This is the most intriguing prettiest rose I got last fall, but not in zone 7 miserable summers. No blooms and chewing-pest prone. Scanty growth. Hope it picks up in the fall.

Hope it picks up second year....

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Planted in dedicated bed last fall but scant blooms in spring however, the color blend is captivating. The little shrub is pitifull, though. I hope that it picks up second year. Patience needed here.

Cinco de Mayo: never stops blooming!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I planted four of these last spring (2014) in the Houston area and they bloomed nonstop through the hot summer and even now-late December. No problems with diseases/black spot, etc. Getting a little leggy by now, but with a little shaping in January, they should be back in full form. Love this little rose! Color changes with temperature-the blooms are more orange-ish when it's hot, but have more of the purple tone when temps are cooler. Awesome rose!
