Florentina™ Arborose® Climbing Rose

Description

Petal-Packed, Fragrant Blooms

Cloak practically any garden structure in crimson bloom. Florentina™ is a lovely, wonderfully floriferous variety that sets big, plush, peony-like red blooms on a soft-caned climbing plant reaching just about 3 feet wide and 7 feet high. A great size for the fence, trellis, or arbor, Florentina blends beautifully with Clematis and other climbers and doesn't take everything over.

Florentina™ is part of the Arborose series from the renowned rose breeders at Kordes. Carefully bred for exceptional disease resistance, own-root vigor, softer canes, and more abundant blooms, this series is a huge improvement for most common garden uses. The manageable size makes Florentina a good fit for more garden structures, while the pliable canes makes it easier to train into decorative shapes.

Absolutely beautiful blooms

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The Florentina is a beautiful climber with impressive, full, gorgeous blooms. This is the third season I have had it and there are about 65 roses on it at the moment. You can not walk past it and not stop for a moment to admire the beauty. One of the canes has 7 buds at the end and when they bloomed, they formed a heart! I wish I could attach a picture but will send it to customer service.

Very Impressed

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Wow! I'm impressed and a little overwhelmed to say nothing of surprised! Today I received my first order from Jackson & Perkins for two red Kordes roses - Florentina CL and Desmond Tutu. I thought they were going to be little 2-qt things but they are these huge bareroots. I'm pretty unfamiliar with bareroots since I always buy potted. These are going to need a DEEP hole! Florentina definitely says it's ownroot, but Tutu says nothing either way. I don't see a graft so I'm assuming it's ownroot, too. I love Kordes roses! Absolutely impeccable disease resistance in hot humid Central Florida and very undemanding. I don't even water or feed the three I have - for years, but they are in a very well amended bed. Now I just have to buy a trellis for Florentina and install it. I'm really excited!

After browsing and seeing such poor ratings on this rose I felt I needed to include my two cents. I’ve purchased 13 roses this year from 3 different companies/breeders...so far, these have been the most impressive as far as robust and general health. I purchased them as bareroots. They were huge and hearty when they arrived, perfectly packaged. I followed instructions and soaked them prior to planting. They were covered in little buds which immediately took off. I’m just a couple months they have grown to over two feet tall with gorgeous glossy foliage. Too early for flowers, my experience with climbers is that you can’t really expect any blooms the first year. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchAse a Kordes bareroot in the future and in fact I’m already eyeing the plum perfect for next year! By the way, I bought three of these and all three are awesome. If it helps, I’m zone 9 and these are in deep pots with frequent watering and periodic fish emulsion treatments. I have two that get great sun and one that is partial sun do to my patio and am still happy with the growth on each one (although the full sun are slightly bigger)
