>This morning during my daily garden walk, I found the most perfect spray of “Moondance” roses. I say perfect, because it exhibits all the qualities that I like in a bouquet of roses. Great green foliage, beautiful blooms at all stages: bud, exhibition stage and fully open. Just cut and plunge into a vase and, voila; instant bouquet!
This is our first year growing floribunda roses. Moondance has proven to be a winner in our garden. I have not sprayed this rose as much as the hybrid teas, and it has excellent disease resistance. I have however, had an issue with mites and aphids attacking these pristine blooms, but a little insecticide (used sparingly) cleared it up to an acceptable level.
