New Rose In My Garden – ‘Colorific’ Floribunda


Not that I would ever buy a rose on a whim (ha), but this one I did! Actually, I bought three shrubs of this relatively new floribunda, ‘Colorific’. They have gotten off to a slow start, but have produced a few very nice blooms. I am looking forward to see how this rose matures in the garden.


The variation of colors is very nice and is most prevalent when the bloom is fully open.


Colorific – Floribunda
Introduced by Weeks Roses in 2009
Color: Orange Blend

    It reminds me of a chiffon dress with layers coming down from the waist. Very pretty.
