The most endearing characteristic of the Playboy is the fanciful color shading. The blossoms start out brilliant orange yellow and age to a deeper red. A golden yellow stamen sits in the middle of each blossom.

How to Use Playboy Rose in the Landscape
No matter where you plant it, people are drawn to the Playboy Rose. This appeal makes it a great plant to use as a single specimen in a border planting. Try it as an outstanding focal point in a personal Meditation Garden.
Of course, you’ll want to be sure to include at least one as a part of a collection of different rose varieties. Pair it with yellow, melon-colored or red roses for extra sex appeal!
Treat this rose as a shrub to be used almost anywhere in the garden. Plant as a low hedge by spacing plants at 5 foot on center. You’ll measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
A dependable repeat bloomer, the long continuous bloom can be sustained by simply removing the spent blooms during the flowering season.
Be sure to allow the last spray of the season to develop into beautiful rose hips. Birds will love them, and they’ll provide gorgeous winter interest. Chock full of Vitamin C, you might even use them in seasonal teas.
Prune to maintain height in late winter or early spring. Cut out all but to 3 to 4 evenly spaced laterals and then cut those back these by 1/3rd to get your plants off to a great start for the growing season.
#ProPlantTips for Care
People love this plant for its show, hardiness and disease resistance. Give your Playboy Rose in a full sun location in soil that drains well.
Mulch your plant to 3 to 4 inches deep and out 3 feet from the outside of the laterals to keep roots cool and to maintain surface moisture. This can also help in controlling weeds and suppling nutrient to the plant as the mulch breaks down.
This is a floribunda cross of the City of Leeds with a Hybrid of the Chanelle and Piccadilly roses, which gives it the multi-blooming characteristics and the larger blossom size.
Playboy is a fabulous addition to any garden. Order today!
