Day Breaker Floribunda Rose
Rosa 'Day Breaker'
More roses are going into the big rose garden today and this floribunda is ready as it is literally covered with blooms. The big wedding (300 people) is tomorrow and the existing roses just didn’t cooperate. They look okay but the aren’t a lot of flowers. Those couple of late season frosts/freezes just set them back too much. All the rain and cloudy weather hasn’t helped either.
‘Day Breaker’ has been an excellent performer when we have grown in the past and I hope that continues that tradition. It has nice sized apricot blend flowers that have a good fragrance. This rose won the AARS award in 2004 and was introduced in 2005 to the US.
I sure am happy this week is over. Happy Memorial Day weekend to the Americans out there. Hard to believe summer is starting.
