    Trumpeter is a short shrub and will always remain short for me. This one is the perfect choice to tuck in a tight spot where a larger shrub would not fit or work out. The vivid and striking orange blooms always get my attention. A very nice floribunda rose. Just as all of my roses here in my humid Long Island, NY garden, Trumpeter needs to be sprayed with a systemic fungicide to remain disease free.
