The rose was introduced as 'Florescent Fuschia,' so the misspelling of both halves of the name apparently was intentional.

Bought this rose in 2011, it has survived 2 of my zone 5 winters with moderate (3-5") of mulch. Doesn't die back 100% like some other roses. This year (2013) is the first year it has bloomed. A rather boring rose considering the name (I was expecting something bright & gaudy.. it's rather ordinary). No scent. Poor vase life (less than 1 day). Poor cane life (rose fades after 1-2 days on the bush). Doesn't shatter through, just looks yucky. Not highly recommended.
