Kimberlina Floribunda Rose

Kimberlina Floribunda Rose

2009 Floribunda of the Year®.

Our 2009 Floribunda of the Year® winner, 'Kimberlina', is one of the healthiest, toughest, most vigorous floribundas ever introduced. Set against glossy, dark green foliage on an upright, well-branched plant, its light pink blooms with a rose-pink reverse exhibit a soft-spoken elegance and versatility that lends itself ideally to any type of mixed landscape.

The 3-inch blossoms open from attractive pointed, ovoid buds that appear in large clusters, arising in flushes throughout their early summer to late summer season and offering a light but pleasant spicy fragrance.

The plant reaches a mature size of 4 feet high and 3½ feet wide, making it ideal for beds, borders, low hedges, and patio containers. You'll want one in your cut garden as well, so you can snip a few bouquets here and there to brighten your home!

Plant this floribunda in well-drained soil in full sun. Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom. Spring pruning is recommended. Old and dead wood should be removed and canes that cross need to be cut back. Gardeners in warmer climates should cut back the remaining canes by about one-third, while those in colder areas will probably want to prune a little more than that. Var: 'JACpoulp'. Zones 5-10.
