Here are two roses from the big rose garden. The first is a Floribunda named ‘Outrageous’. It has some beautiful blending of the colors and is a fairly large rose. It does seem to get blackspot but I have managed to keep it clean this year. In 2000, this rose was chosen as Jackson & Perkins Floribunda of the Year.
