This was one of the top performers in my garden for almost 25 years. It was large for a floribunda, about 5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, and it was generous with its blooms, producing clusters of perfectly shaped blooms of a coral-pink hue in large numbers for most of the year. It originally was growing in the dappled shade of a small oak tree. As the oak tree grew, so did the shade, and I moved the rose to a sunnier spot. That's where the gophers found it last year. Apparently, it's delicious in addition to having those other positive features. I will buy it again.
