The earliest blooming Rose in your garden! Here at Nature Hills Nursery, we know the feeling. That feeling that the winter is over and you can't wait for the first Roses to start blooming. Thanks to Rainbow Sorbet - that wait is a little less than it used to be! Elevated upon a straight, sturdy Rose standard trunk, you get a Rose Tree that simply stuns! Rainbow Sorbet is a hard-to-find Floribunda that we are very proud to offer!
Some rosarians look at the Rainbow Sorbet Rose Trees (Rosa 'Baiprez') blooms and say it is a yellow flower with peach and pink highlights at its petal tips. Others say it is a magnificent peachy-pink Rose with a glowing yellow center. One look and you can't deny the reason 'Rainbow' is this Rose's name. It has a beautiful blend of all of those colors for a creamy fruity ombre effect!
Rainbow Sorbet's delectable blossoms begin their show in spring and repeat their display right up until autumn! The glossy, green leaves provide a vibrant backdrop for the magnificent flowers, and a light fragrance tops off the show with an alluring call to pollinators. As the Roses fade, they tend to finish in shades of light yellows and pinks for yet another delightfully decorative touch.
The blooms come in clusters on long stems, perfect for cutting. One stem makes a complete bouquet! This is a very hardy Floribunda Rose that does extremely well in colder climates from USDA planting zones 5 to 10. Growing atop its 2-3 foot tall standard, these Rose trees command attention at 5 - 8 feet tall when in full bloom thanks to those elegant long stems, but these Roses canopies only spread 3-4 feet in width.
Much like a refreshing "rainbow sorbet" on a hot summer afternoon, this Rose Trees' delicious colors will brighten even the drabbest of spots in your yard! Rainbow Sorbet Rose is stunning as a single specimen and focal point, but it really shines if you plant it beside other yellow or pink flowers or groundcovers. The fragrance carries and fills your outdoor garden rooms with heavenly scents!
It completely commands the view if you plant multiple Rainbow Sorbets in a bed side by side. One would look spectacular as a patio plant in a large planter or porch container in the sun! You'll get a cheerful welcome to your front door and a curious conversation piece around the barbecue pit. For a dramatic effect, plant several as a border, underplanted with yellow perennials or low-growing flowering plants like a skirt. Even just one will add a splash of color and definition to your perennial bed.
Your Rainbow Sorbet is a Floribunda Rose that has been trained into an elegant tree form. Its semi-double blooms have a petal count of 12-16 and demonstrate a long vase life as well as performing well as a dried flower for long-term use! Include them in your Cut Flower garden and they are a must-have to add height and drama to Rose and Cottage Gardens!
Rainbow Sorbet is disease resistant and does well in cooler climates. This modern Floribunda loves full sun and needs to be planted in soil that drains well and in a location that has good air circulation. Water enough to maintain consistent soil moisture. Feed a good organic fertilizer in early spring, and again in mid-summer. Spread arborist mulch over the roots 3 to 4 inches deep and spread out 3 feet from the trunk. This will keep roots cool and maintain surface moisture. This will also help in controlling weeds and provides a nice, uniform look to the garden bed.
Winter protection for Tree Form Roses is suggested for the cooler zones by overwintering your Rose in an unheated garage after it goes dormant, or outside with a straw and burlap wrap. Then in spring, take it back out or unwrap it and trim the canopy back.
Prune back the Rose tree canopy several inches to maintain the nice round form atop its trunk. Keep new blooms returning with occasional deadheading. Prune away suckers and branching that forms at the base or on the trunk each year too. Find more info about pruning Roses, winterizing Roses, and un-wintering Roses in our Garden Blog.
Rainbow Sorbet is an early-blooming Floribunda Rose with a lot to offer! Don't let this one get away! Multi-colored blooms that keep displaying from spring to fall make this an eye-catching Rose in any setting. However, add that this is the tree form, and you've got a stunning variety that you simply won't want to miss! Order today at Nature Hills!
Roses need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.
You can plant Roses any time if you are able to provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.
Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
