ALL AMERICAN ROSE SELECTIONS 2011
There was only one winner of this prestigious award last year which was “Easy Does It”.
For 2011 the judges have awarded two joint winners.
“DICK CLARK” and “WALKING ON SUNSHINE”
“Dick Clark” is a Floribunda with masses of black red buds which open to attractive blooms of cream, washed with vibrant cherry pink. When the sun strikes the petals the blooms change to blush-burgundy and finally dark red.
Height 2ft-3ft with a rounded bushy habit.
Good disease resistance and a cinnamon spice fragrance.
Super shiny green foliage.
Good long stems which are ideal for cutting.
Bred by Weeks Roses.
“Walking On Sunshine” is also a Floribunda with a mass of ruffled blooms of bright yellow. As the blooms fade they turn a lighter shade of yellow giving an interesting two tone effect.
Height 2ft-3ft Good vigorous growth. Also has excellent disease resistance and is a very easy to grow variety with a lovely perfume.
Bred by Jackson and Perkins.
Both roses will be available in the USA in 2011.
