Laura Bush Floribunda Rose

Laura Bush Floribunda Rose

Gorgeous blooms with a fruity fragrance!

A fitting tribute to the former First Lady, who is an avid gardener and rosarian, this rose also honors Mrs. Bush's many contributions to education, literacy, and global health. You'll love the large clusters of richly ruffled, brilliantly colored blooms!

'Laura Bush' is a floribunda, blooming freely in waves. The 4-inch flowers, which spiral open from lovely pointed, ovoid buds, are pleasantly scented with a fruit-influenced aroma, perfect for a little bouquet on the breakfast table as well as a generous display on the mantel or the desk.

The plant itself reaches a mature size of just 3 feet high and wide, making it ideal for everything from sunny beds and borders to low hedges and patio containers. It coats itself in attractive dark green foliage that looks great even when not adorned with the gorgeous blooms.

Plant this rose as a lasting tribute in your garden, and enjoy its generous clusters of dusky orange buds opening to ruffled, cinnamon-orange blooms.

Plant in well-drained soil in full sun. 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.
