A Classic Floribunda Favorite For It's Color, Fragrance & Hardiness
The Playboy rose has glossy green foliage, which offsets the large, orange-scarlet semi-double blooms which are faintly fragrant with an apple scent.
This is a floribunda rose which gives it the multiblooming characteristics and the larger blossom size. Playboy roses bloom very profusely and are widely grown.
The Playboy most endearing characteristic is the color shading. The mixture of orange and yellow is highlighted by the red hues of the petals. A golden yellow stamen sits in the middle of each blossom. The usual blossom size is about 3.5 inches across.
The foliage is dark green and appears to be almost polished. The blossoms contrast nicely with the dark foliage!
Rose gardeners love this plant for its show, hardiness, disease resistance, and shade tolerance.
The Playboy has been performing at a high level for a long time. It was the New Zealand National Rose Trial Ground winner in 1985 and it was a Portland Gold Medal winner in 1989.
The Playboy is an interesting addition to any rose garden.
It is one of the showiest roses you can plant!
