Floribunda Rose ‘Easter Basket’


Floribunda Rose ‘Easter Basket

Color: Yellow blend w/ pink edges
Petal Count: Medium, 18-25
Bred: Alain Meilland (2006).
US Introduction: Conard-Pyle/Star Roses, 2007
Fragrance: Very Mild
Parentage: ‘Carefree Beauty’ x ‘DELbara' × ‘KORfalt’

This rose was blooming very late in the season and still looked good. The roses went right up to the end and there were still quite a few buds until it really froze. A lot of times the late season rose flowers can have some blemishes and are not shaped as beautifully as one of the summer flowers. Don’t get me wrong having a slightly less then perfect rose is better than no roses, especially at that time of the year.

Both ‘Easter Basket’ and the other rose photo today were able to escape the disease cycle and produced some clean flowers the day I had my camera. These pictures were taken November 2nd of last year. This other rose’s name escapes me now but it is another yellow blend. The flowers are two or three times the size of ‘Easter Basket’.


With this weather it will be fun to visit everyone’s flowers.

What a pretty yellow roses with reddish blush. I especially like 'Easter Basket.' I wonder if it's hardy enough for a USDA Zone 4 garden. Hmmmm. And I wonder if it's available in Canada. Think I'm going to check that out!

Wonderful roses!

Your second rose looks like
'Peace' considering it was an autumn bloom.
Roses are so rewarding.

Thanks for all the comments.

Stine I don't think it is going to be hardy up there but you never know. Try the hortico site for roses in Canada.

Hi Arija,

Actually I think the second rose maybe a variation of the 'Peace' rose called 'Love & Peace' but I wasn't sure enough to post the name.
